There is an N95 Covid Mask , a bandage package (that every runner should have)  key chains and pens and pins and literature on how everyone qualifies to be a Legion Member, (Am I being too subtle here?) and you also receive the tote bag in the picture together with magnets with important info on them, writing pads etc.!
