Flag’s amazing journey raises funds for children of fallen soldiers

WHITE PLAINS -

The fourth annual Rolling Remembrance was held at PepsiCo in White Plains Thursday to honor the memory of fallen soldiers.

Rolling Remembrance features a flag that has been traveling across the nation more than 8,000 miles, nestled in a Pepsi truck that makes 50 stops along its journey.

The flag is handed off from one driver to another. Each of the drivers is a veteran and every mile of the trip raises money for the Children of Fallen Patriots, a nonprofit organization aimed at helping military children who lost parents in the line of duty.

Rolling Remembrance has raised $200,000 for Children of Fallen Patriots. The money will go toward scholarships and educational counseling.
