Team RWB Hosts Old Glory Relay To Honor Our Nation’s Veterans
From September 11 through November 11, military veterans and supporters will run, walk, and hike side by side to carry an American flag from New York to Georgia. The Old Glory Relay is hosted by Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB), a nonprofit organization forging America’s leading health and wellness community for veterans, helping them find lasting fulfillment through the creation of deep bonds with other veterans and civilian supporters.
The relay, presented by Window World, begins on the 20th anniversary of September 11 in New York City and culminates in Atlanta on Veterans Day, November 11, 2021. The Old Glory Relay is made possible with support from Team RWB’s corporate partners including MI Windows and Doors, Amazon Military, The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, The Vitamin Shoppe, Comcast NBCUniversal, TrueCar Military, Fox Nation, Microsoft, Thompson Machinery, and BMW, the official vehicle of the Old Glory Relay.
“The Old Glory Relay is an incredible opportunity to support our veteran and military communities, and we’re honored to be the presenting sponsor this year,” says Window World Chairman & CEO Tammy Whitworth. “This event, along with all the life-changing work that Team RWB does, is integral in empowering veterans to overcome their challenges and create lasting relationships with their peers. Furthermore, we’re extremely proud to support our country on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, and we’re grateful to Team RWB for giving us all the opportunity to take part in such a moving tribute.”
Veterans and civilian supporters can register to participate by running a leg of the relay in person in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia. Participants also have the option to join shadow runs in areas with a Team RWB chapter or to register as virtual participants and move the flag in their own community.
“The Old Glory Relay is a patriotic way to pursue our mission as we pass an American Flag that will ultimately connect thousands of Americans and countless communities over its more than 2,000-mile journey,” said Mike Erwin, Executive Director of Team RWB.
To further support the event, from September 11 through November 11, 2021, The Vitamin Shoppe will donate $1 to Team RWB from any purchase from its brand partners Force Factor, Isopure, Lean Body by Labrada, LifeAid, and Optimum Nutrition to Team RWB, up to $50,000 in total contributions.
