Today, Team Red, White and Blue (Team RWB) is excited to announce the support
of the world’s leading athletic brand NIKE, Inc., who will serve as its
official outfitter for athletic apparel.

Team Red, White and Blue was founded in 2010 with a mission to keep military
veterans active in their communities. The Team RWB Veteran Ambassador Program
welcomes new veterans to the team and ensures that they have the information
and resources to stay connected with their local chapter, as well as the
national community. This is Team RWB's movement to encourage veterans to stay
active and inspire others to do the same. Each new veteran that joins the Team
will receive a NIKE-produced Team RWB shirt.

“For decades, the NIKE brand has defined the importance of action.Team Red,
White and Blue could not have chosen a more fitting partner," said Mike Erwin,
the organization’s Founder and Chairman of the Board. "Team RWB's vision to
keep veterans active aligns with NIKE's view that everybody is an athlete. And
NIKE is the ultimate performance apparel company in the world. Through this
partnership, we will outfit our members with the highest quality athletic
apparel and are extremely excited to have NIKE support our team.“

Through the partnership, NIKE has committed to providing Dri-Fit athletic
shirts to Team Red, White and Blue in 2014. Team RWB has a current membership
of more than 35,000, organized by chapters in 90 cities across the United
States--and is looking to drive continued growth throughout 2014.

“NIKE was founded on the premise that: if you have a body, you are an athlete
and we are proud to be able to support Team RWB on their mission to inspire
veterans to lead their communities towards an active future,” said NIKE VP &
GM North America Football, Baseball, Athletic Training and Team, Loren Hoppes.
”Team RWB and their members have the potential to inspire and enable positive
experience through physical activity and sports across our communities.”
