On July 17, 1962, RUSH Founder Eduardo Rabel arrived in the US from Cuba, as a part of Operation Pedro Pan. Operation Pedro Pan was the Cuban Children Exodus of 14,048 children from Cuba to the United States in order to avoid their living in a Socialist/Communist Nation.

Rabel first stayed in a refugee camp, known as Camp Matecumbe, for 7 months in Miami, Florida, before moving to a Campbell Lodge Boy's Home for 6 years near Covington, Kentucky. With the help and encouragement of many people at the camp, the boy's home, and the community, Ed was able to learn English, put himself through college at the Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, KY, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree and then attended the University of Detroit earning a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering. He later founded RUSH Construction, Inc. in 1984.
