Old Glory Relay

At sunrise on September 11th, Old Glory was unfurled in front of the iconic Seattle Space Needle under a beautiful rainbow. Throughout the third iteration of “America’s Relay” more than 8,000 sets of hands helped transport Old Glory the 4,216 miles of a completely redesigned course. These stories, woven together, impacted communities on and off the course with positive enrichment through action. After 62 days on the course, the Old Glory Relay concluded in Tampa, Florida on Veterans Day.

Team RWB is my second family! It has given me an outlet to connect with people with similar stories to mine, with accountability partners who motivate me to continue to push myself and with a team that always has my back and that I can always count on.
