Merging Vets & Players (MVP) Virtual Huddle

(Note: This event is not open to the general public or media.)

On Monday (11/16), several Ravens Legends and local combat veterans will participate in a virtual workout, facilitated by Merging Vets and Players (MVP). Following the workout, they will take part in a "huddle," which will serve as an opportunity for open dialogue, peer support and to build camaraderie.

MVP empowers combat veterans and former athletes by connecting them after the uniform comes off; providing them a new team to assist with the transition, promote personal development and to show them they are never alone.
