LOWNDES Co. – The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office along with the Georgia State Patrol will escort the Rolling Remembrance vehicle at 11 a.m., Friday from Interstate 75 Exit 29 to the PepsiCo facility at Madison Highway and Industrial Boulevard.

Rolling Remembrance is a 5,000 mile long relay of an American flag from Seattle to New York during the month of May to benefit Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation.

Using normal business routes, U.S. Military Veteran PepsiCo drivers will pass off a flag to each other at 31 different relay points. The patriotic flag was flown on a UH-60M Blackhawk Helicopter on a combat mission in support of U.S. and Coalition ground forces in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom 2012.

Awareness is not the only benefit for Fallen Patriots. While the Rolling Remembrance flag is relayed at each site, participation from the local community is encouraged. Last year, the Rolling Remembrance campaign raised over $50,000 for Fallen Patriots. While incredibly generous, nearly 20,000 children from all across America are still in need of future assistance. Fallen Patriots continues to work to honor those who are no longer with us by giving to those they left behind.

Since 2002, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation has filled the gap in college financing for hundreds of children who otherwise would not be able to afford a higher education, or who would be saddled with enormous debt that would hamper their future.
