During the first 100 Miles for Hope Challenge in 2020, American Legion posts across the nation engaged local community groups to join. After all, the campaign is not just for American Legion Family members, it is open to anyone.

Now in its second year, 100 Miles for Hope represents a perfect way for American Legion posts to bond with service organizations, youth groups, churches and other community groups. Here are some examples of organizations that local American Legion posts might want to engage with:

Veterans service organizations: Team Red White and Blue, Student Veterans of America, The Mission Continues, Team Rubicon and others.

Youth and family groups: Scouts BSA, Boys and Girls Clubs, Special Olympics, the YMCA and YWCA, school sports teams, Junior Shooting Sports participants, American Legion Baseball teams, etc.

Nonprofits specializing in health: The American Red Cross, the American Heart Association, Alzheimer’s Association, etc.
