Veterans, supporters to carry American flag through 62-day journey
ATLANTA, Sept. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- From September 11 through November 11, military veterans and supporters will run, walk, and hike side by side to carry an American flag from New York to Georgia. The Old Glory Relay is hosted by Team Red, White & Blue ( Team RWB ), a nonprofit organization forging America’s leading health and wellness community for veterans, helping them find lasting fulfillment through the creation of deep bonds with other veterans and civilian supporters.
The relay, presented by Window World, begins on the 20th anniversary of September 11 in New York City and culminates in Atlanta on Veterans Day, November 11, 2021. The Old Glory Relay is made possible with support from Team RWB’s corporate partners including MI Windows and Doors, Amazon Military, The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, The Vitamin Shoppe, Comcast NBCUniversal, TrueCarMilitary, Fox Nation, Microsoft, Thompson Machinery, and BMW, the official vehicle of the Old Glory Relay.
Veterans and civilian supporters can register to participate by running a leg of the relay in person in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia. Participants also have the option to join shadow runs in areas with a Team RWB chapter or to register as virtual participants and move the flag in their own community.
“The Old Glory Relay is a patriotic way to pursue our mission as we pass an American Flag that will ultimately connect thousands of Americans and countless communities over its more than 2,000-mile journey,” said Mike Erwin, Executive Director of Team RWB.
