Lifting up America's Veterans with 1 Flag passed through 10,000 sets of hands over 4,300 miles

A 4,300-mile journey across America to honor and connect veterans while celebrating all that unites us as a nation. 

As the sun rises on September 11, 2018, Team RWB will gather in Boston, Massachusetts and unfurl Old Glory for the fifth consecutive year. An epic journey will take that same flag through 24 states and 10,000 pairs of hands over 62 days, as veterans and supporters work together to bring the American flag to San Diego, California on Veterans Day. The Old Glory Relay epitomizes what Team RWB is all about – helping America’s veterans find lasting fulfillment through the creation of deep bonds with other veterans and civilian supporters. The Relay is the perfect opportunity to elevate Team RWB’s profile nationally, through compelling stories tied to commemorations of the 17th anniversary of 9/11 and Veterans Day. In addition, the Relay will serve as an opportunity for the media to put a spotlight on an event that all Americans can support, which the public is hungry for in this time of political division.

I’m Honoring Them

“For me to be able to have the physical strength that I do right now to carry the flag and to run across the country…in a way I’m honoring them and honoring my grandpa that served in the military and my dad that served in the military, and it’s just sort of that lineage and so for me that flag just encapsulates everything.”

– Brian Fitzgerald, Team RWB Portland, Army Veteran
