“We are once again blown away by the contributions and efforts put forth by the security industry to raise money for children and communities in crisis,” says Tracy Larson, co-chairwoman of Mission 500. “It was great to gather in person again as an industry to rally around such a great cause. We sincerely appreciate all those who donated, fundraised, sponsored and participated in the Security 5K/2K this year and we look forward to doing it all over again next year!”

A total of 350 registrants signed up for this year’s race, including virtual registrants who were unable to attend the event in person. Funds raised through race registration, event sponsorship and fundraising will directly benefit children and families in need across the U.S.
