Mission 500, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of children and communities in crisis, will hold a 5K race during the show. The run will start at 7:30 a.m. March 25. Runners will be able to register for a nominal $30 fee, with all net proceeds going to charity.
Mission 500 has already raised more than $115,000 from sponsors and supporters from the security industry. Only $1 per day helps feed, educate and cater to a needy child’s health care needs.
Deister Electronics will be the time-keeping sponsor; Altronix, HID, LRG Marketing Communications and Morse Watchmans also have committed to sponsoring the race. Mission 500 hopes to secure 10 more sponsors.
Anyone interested in sponsoring and/or running in the Security 5K should contact George Fletcher at Mission 500. He can be reached at 305-321-3193 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
