The Security 5/2K is a one-of-a-kind event for the security industry. It's the chance for our industry to come together with a common goal in mind—helping children in need. All proceeds generated by the race will be contributed to Mission 500, a nonprofit organization that works closely with the security industry to provide aid to children and families living in poverty in the US.
Your support will help provide food for hungry families, core school supplies, clothing and other essential items. Please join us in fighting poverty in America!
