The two-month program kicked off on May 12 in Miami and continues up the East Coast, closely following the route of the East Coast Greenway and culminating in Portland, Maine, on July 7, the International Day of Cooperatives. The Tour stops in eight cities along the route: Miami, Charleston, Durham, Fredericksburg, Wilmington, New York City, Providence and Portland. Events and activities vary by city, but the overall theme of cooperatives, community service and volunteerism is the hallmark of every celebration.
