NATIONAL EVENTS

Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let your true selves be seen.

—Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

OLD GLORY RELAY

The relay was held over 59 days, starting in San Francisco on September 11, and ending in Washington, D.C., on November 8. Each day began with the American flag being unfurled and entrusted to the day’s first runner and ended with the last runner folding the flag and storing it for safekeeping overnight. During the relay, the flag passed from runner to runner with at least 50 miles traveled each day. Supported by the local communities along the course and by virtual supporters from across the nation, 59 teams moved Old Glory nearly 3,540 miles across our country.
