The 2019 Security 5K/2K was a huge success.
Your collaborative efforts raised more than $145,000.
Some of these proceeds have already been put to good use. During ISC West, volunteer and monetary donations were made to Habitat for Humanity to help provide a family with a new home, and we held a Mission 500 Care Pack drive. Thanks for the great work.
See you in 2020!
