BOSTON, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Flag for Hope initiative is pleased to announce Boston, MA, as the next location on their historic national tour. Flag for Hope invites participants from all walks of life to embrace and solidify their place in the historical record by contributing their handprints to collaborative 'panels of impression,' and be preserved as an historic account of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

These events will take place throughout New England beginning July 1 at the living history museum, Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth, MA. All are encouraged to come together with friends and family to share in this unique community-building experience. By taking part in this project participants will create an indelible physical and digital record of a unified global community that will be displayed for future generations to access their personal and shared histories.

Highlighted stops on this leg of their journey include the starting line of the Boston Marathon on July 2, with special guests Rick, and Dick Hoyt of Team Hoyt,  and will proceed to the Copley Square finish line. Several historic New England sites will be visited, paying homage to the birth of our nation in honor of the Independence Day holiday weekend. While many stops are planned in advance, the movement is based on building community at every opportunity and there will be many spontaneous appearances along the way. Flag for Hope Facebook and Twitter feeds will be updated to reflect additional locations, and all are encouraged to follow for updates as they travel the nation.
