From September 11th to November 11th, a single American flag, Old Glory, will be relayed through 62 teams and handed from one team member to the next to cover 4,216 miles from the State of Washington, through California and across the United States to Tampa Florida.
On September 29th Old Glory will reach the LA area and I've signed up to be part of this amazing journey with Team Red White and Blue! My leg of the relay to carry Old Glory will start at 1:50 am on Friday the 30th in Long Beach at Lakewood Blvd and Carson St.
At sunrise on September 11th, Old Glory will by unfurled on the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Washington for an inspiring experience connecting Eagles, Patriots and Communities across our great Nation. Throughout this third iteration of “America’s Relay” 1,000s of hands will help transport Old Glory the 4,216 miles of this year’s completely redesigned course. Each of the hands that will touch this year’s Old Glory will have their own story of why they are Connected to the symbol of our Nation. These stories woven together will impact communities on an off the course with positive enrichment through action. Team Red, White and Blue’s mission is to enrich the lives of American Veterans through physical and social activities within their communities. After 62-days on the course, the Old Glory Relay will conclude in Tampa on Veteran’s Day.
This mission is driven by our Eagle Ethos of PASSION, PEOPLE, POSITIVITY, COMMUNITY, CAMARADERIE and COMMITMENT. The Relay will be led by Team Red, White and Blue’s unique style of leadership blending EMPATHETIC & AUTHENTIC actions, GENUINE & LOYAL relationships, and EFFECTIVE communication. The Connections made through the Old Glory Relay our supported by our presenting sponsor Microsoft’s desire to empower Veterans of our Nation with the tools for a successful career in the IT industry. Join the experience and tell us how you are CONNECTED with Old Glory.
