As each day passes, I come to believe more and more that the United States of America is the greatest nation ever conceived by man. The guiding principle of ‘liberty and freedom for all’ speaks of hope to people all over the world. As Americans, we also have the coolest flag – for it is full, rich, and colorful – the perfect symbol of that hope.

The Run for the Flag is a 260 mile run in honor of those people who have championed the American Spirit. The Run for the Flag has along its course 260 American flags decorated with the faces and stories of some of those great Americans on each flag. These honorees are representing our beneficiaries from the House of Heroes – Chattahoochee Valley Chapter and MercyMed of Columbus. Please join me in saluting these great Americans and the American flag, our symbol of freedom and hope, with the Run Across Georgia 2020!
