Join us on Sunday, October 1, from 3 PM - 7 PM at Westfield Plaza Bonita as we welcome runners participating in the Old Glory Relay. In partnership with Team Red, White & Blue (RWB), whose mission it is to enrich the lives of American veterans, Westfield is celebrating the runners moving a single American flag over 4,600 miles across the country.
Guests are welcome to show their support for our military community and the Old Glory Relay runners by participating in the Welcome Celebration! All are welcome to participate in welcoming Relay runners at 4 PM! For these festivities, we’ll be joined by the National City Fire Department, the National City Police Department Sweetwater High School Cheer and Dance teams, Eastlake High School Cheer Squad, and Boy Scouts of America (San Diego - Imperial Council). A brief program on-stage will take place following the celebratory arrival of the Relay runners, during which we’ll hear from guest speakers National City Mayor Ron Morrison and National City Police Chief Manuel Rodriguez and a few others.
