More than $110,000 Raised to Benefit Children in Need
Proceeds from the April 3rd event will sponsor over 260 children for a full year − providing food, water, education, healthcare and most importantly, hope. Event proceeds help maintain the number of sponsored children at more than 700.
The organizers received overwhelming support from across all areas of the security industry. A record 723 runners and walkers from 20 different countries and 40 states registered for the event. The first place overall female runner was Lisanne Naeth (21:48) of Victoria, BC, and first place overall male runner was Peter Novick (18:11) of Rockville, Maryland.
