Week 2: Old Glory Relay 2018
In Week #2, Old Glory has traveled for 10 Days, 527 Miles, and through 5 states (MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ)
The Northeast Eagles crushed miles through the hills of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York as they made their way toward the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Day 5 saw Old Glory move almost 60 miles through 27 pairs of hands from Saugerties Lighthouse to West Point, eventually retiring for the day at Trophy Point.
From West Point to the Bronx, Day 7 leg captain Fabrizio tackled 90% of the route himself, covering approximately 35 miles between running and the bike!
Everyone has a place in Team RWB, and everyone belongs.” The Eagle Fire continued to burn hot as Northeast Eagle Leader Nate Blackler and Chief Advancement Officer Megan King represented Eagle Nation on Fox & Friends. Nate and Megan shared the power of Team RWB to save lives and build connections across the nation…one genuine relationship at a time!
Eagles brought the Eagle Fire through a rainy NYC afternoon, ending at the 9/11 Memorial with the New York City Fire Department firefighters.
