In Week #7, Old Glory has traveled for 45 Days, 3,007 Miles, and through 18 states (MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, OH, MI, IN, IL, WI, MN, IA, NE, KS, CO) 

Old Glory has officially racked up 3,000 miles this year, with just over two weeks to go until we reach the finish line in San Diego. We are grateful for those who have held and supported Old Glory so far. It is because of you that the wave of Eagle Fire keeps moving across the nation!

This week, the Old Glory Relay presented by Microsoft brought our Eagles deep into the heart of Nebraska.

Tim, a veteran who lost his sight in a sniper attack, biked the flag across the border into Kansas – a day no one will soon forget.
Day 42 brought our teams to the Colorado border, ready for some epic snow and mountain climbing.
Team RWB Fort Collins came onto the scene on Day 43 ready to take Old Glory on a tour of Colorado! The fresh mountain air fueled the Eagles of Team RWBFort Collins as they entered Flager!
From there, Old Glory headed to Colorado Springs, home of the United States Air Force Academy – the fourth and final service academy on the OGR route this year!
What an amazing journey for our flag, lifted by Eagles from coast to coast, and cheered on by neighbors in every community. Colorado Springs was no exception, as Microsoft Software & Systems Academy (MSSA) students gathered at Red Leg Brewery to show their support.
