TrueCar and Team Red, White & Blue Partner for 4,600-Mile Journey Across America

As part of their DrivenToDrive program, TrueCar, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRUE) has partnered with Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) in support of the Old Glory Relay which kicked off in Seattle on September 11 and will end in Tampa, Fla. on Veterans Day (Nov. 11). DrivenToDrive is a program dedicated to helping veterans who have fought for our freedom, regain their independence and freedom.

The Old Glory Relay is comprised of more than 70 teams of veterans and their supporters completing assigned daily relay legs while carrying a single American flag over 4,600 miles across the country. The Relay is a one-of-a-kind experience filled with unity, patriotism and pride. The final stretch crosses the Florida Panhandle before finishing in Tampa, home of Team RWB’s National Firebase, with a Retreat Celebration at the Westfield Brandon mall.

“We are extremely proud to partner with TrueCar for the Old Glory Relay and their DrivenToDrive program,” said Dan Brostek, marketing director, Team RWB. “During the Relay, one van becomes the centerpiece for hundreds of amazing stories from individuals across the country, and I can think of no better way to reward a deserving veteran than to present them with a van of their own.”

As one of the key sponsors for the Old Glory Relay, TrueCar has equipped Team RWB with a van that will be traveling alongside relay participants as they make their way across the country. At the end of the cross-country journey, TrueCar and honored guest, Retired Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg, will present one deserving veteran with a new van similar to the one that followed the relay teams across the country. Active members of the military, veterans or immediate family members can enter to win the van at truecar.com/driventodrive.

“We are humbled to be a part of such an inspiring event that empowers and unifies these heroes from across the country,” said Lucas Donat, chief brand officer, TrueCar. “All of us at TrueCar have been touched by the veterans in our lives, and we are committed to helping the men and women of our military regain the independence and freedom many of them have lost in service by dedicating ourselves to helping them get back behind the wheel.”

2017 Old Glory Relay Presented by Microsoft

The fourth iteration of Team Red, White & Blue’s (Team RWB) Old Glory Relay started at sunrise this morning at CenturyLink Stadium with Microsoft as the presenting sponsor. Today marks the start of a cross-country journey that will feature hundreds of veterans participating from all branches and eras of service. In total, over 70 teams which include veterans and their supporters will carry a single American flag over 4,600 miles in 62 days from Seattle, Washington to Tampa, Florida. From September 11th through Veterans Day (Nov. 11), the teams will be running, walking, and cycling with an American flag across each leg of the relay in their mission to bring the flag home to Team RWB’s National Headquarters in Florida.

“We are beyond excited to start the Old Glory Relay, which is an important national event for the Team Red, White & Blue community,” said J.J. Pinter, Executive Director, Team RWB. “It’s the fourth time we’re crossing the country, and it just gets better every time thanks to the amazing group of veterans, supporters, sponsors and communities engaged along the course. This journey aims to send a message that our country is stronger and better when we’re unified, connected and helping Veterans transition for success.”

Relay participants will be joined by presenting sponsor Microsoft, in addition to key sponsors including Westfield, TrueCar, Starbucks, Comcast NBCUniversal, Schultz Family Foundation, and Amazon.

“Microsoft is committed to empowering the veteran community both here at Microsoft and elsewhere,” said Chris Cortez, retired Marine Corps Major General and now vice president of Military Affairs at Microsoft. “The Old Glory Relay is a great example of how organizations like Team Red, White & Blue bring our veterans together, and build community from coast to coast and abroad. We are tremendously proud to be the presenting sponsor in this effort.”

The Old Glory Relay is a one-of-a-kind experience filled with unity, patriotism and pride as teams safely complete their assigned daily relay legs between the times of sunrise and sunset. Following the kickoff in Seattle, Old Glory will move south along the West Coast through the Cascade Range before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and through San Francisco. Continuing south, Old Glory will connect Team RWB Eagles and supporters in Los Angeles and San Diego before heading eastward through the desert landscapes of Arizona and New Mexico and crossing San Antonio and Houston. For the final stretch, the relay will cross the Florida Panhandle before finishing in Tampa, home of Team Red, White & Blue’s National Firebase, with a fitting Retreat Celebration at the Westfield Brandon mall.
