About the Relay
The Old Glory Relay is a national movement showcasing the strength, grit, and commitment of American veterans in support of their well-being. In 2023, over 800 veterans and supporters walked, rucked, ran, and cycled a single American flag more than 4,000 miles from Seattle, WA to Atlanta, GA in just 50 days.
Rooted in an epic display of patriotism, the Old Glory Relay epitomizes what Team RWB is all about — showing our nation’s veterans that their best days are ahead through a strong focus on health and wellness.
2023 Presenting Sponsor: BMW
For the 2023 relay, a BMW X5 hybrid, outfitted with special BMW and Team RWB decals is serving as the support vehicle, and has already traveled from California to Arizona. BMW dealerships along the route will recognize participants and celebrate the American flag’s arrival.
Our goal for 2023 was to raise at least $75,000 for America’s veterans. With the help of our particpants and supporters, we raised $250,000!
