BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT: Old Glory Relay 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 11, 2016
Friends and family,
On October 28th I will be in Louisiana with other members of my local Team RWB from the Twin Cities and will get my chance to carry Old Glory as it moves from west to east across our great country. I so look forward to participating in this event.
Team RWB has meant a lot to me since I joined about one year ago. I am not a veteran, but greatly respect those that choose to serve all of us in our armed forces. I joined to support them, and in the end it has been rewarding for me as well. We run together. We eat together. We just have fun together. In doing so we close the gap between veterans and non-vets. We give purpose to both. We create positive community. The Old Glory Run is a way to show unity across the USA. Please join me by supporting Team RWB and the Old Glory Run! Many thanks in advance!

At sunrise on September 11th, Old Glory was unfurled on the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Washington for an inspiring experience connecting Eagles, Patriots and Communities across our great Nation. Throughout this third iteration of “America’s Relay” 1,000s of hands will help transport Old Glory the 4,216 miles of this year’s completely redesigned course. Each of the hands that will touch this year’s Old Glory will have their own story of why they are Connected to the symbol of our Nation. These stories woven together will impact communities on an off the course with positive enrichment through action. Team Red, White and Blue’s mission is to enrich the lives of American Veterans through physical and social activities within their communities. After 62-days on the course, the Old Glory Relay will conclude in Tampa on Veteran’s Day.
This mission is driven by our Eagle Ethos of PASSION, PEOPLE, POSITIVITY, COMMUNITY, CAMARADERIE and COMMITMENT. The Relay will be led by Team Red, White and Blue’s unique style of leadership blending EMPATHETIC & AUTHENTIC actions, GENUINE & LOYAL relationships, and EFFECTIVE communication. The Connections made through the Old Glory Relay our supported by our presenting sponsor Microsoft’s desire to empower Veterans of our Nation with the tools for a successful career in the IT industry. Join the experience and tell us how you are CONNECTED with Old Glory.
