Army Major Mike Erwin served in the US Army for 13 years and was a part of 3 deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
He is the founder and President of The Positivity Project, a non-profit strengthening leadership and relationships through a deeper understanding of character.
There are now 15,000 members in 55 cities.
Through his Team Red White and Blue, Erwin wants to run 100 miles in 100 hours in order to raise money and awareness for the veteran’s support organization.
Erwin started the organization three years ago when he was studying psychology and leadership at the University of Michigan.
“We’re providing that network that helps veterans to combat the tendency to isolate themselves as they go through a difficult transition from soldier to civilian,” Major Erwin said.
As the Board Chair, Mike is responsible for the strategic direction of Team RWB, which includes administration of the board, program development, fundraising management, and ensuring that the organization and its partnerships are aligned with Team RWB’s mission.
Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
Mike graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point (Duty, Honor, Country // ARMY) in 2002 and earned his Master’s degree from the University of Michigan in 2011. He lives in Pinehurst, NC, with his wife and four children.
