Community 5k Run for Charity

by David Sprinkle

Sports have played a prevalent role this week at Veritas Recruiting Group. From a Spring Training game between the Braves and Marlins to the 2014 Rescue Run Corporate 5K all with the peak of March Madness busting brackets in the background.

This was the third consecutive Rescue Run Corporate 5K the VRG team has participated in. As a company whose ultimate goal seeks to help people, we couldn’t say no to an event that gives back to our community. The race benefits the Rescue Outreach Mission, Seminole County’s only homeless shelter by providing them with the profits the philanthropy raises.

This year we decided to stray away from our typical pink “Got Talent?” jerseys and went with a vibrant orange color that had us definitely standing out. Unfortunately the new color didn’t give us any more of an advantage as our Managing Partner, David Sprinkle placed, 18th of the 20 CEO’s that competed. We’ll cut him some slack due to the fact that he’s just 5 months removed from an Achilles rupture and had the privilege of pushing his 3 children in a stroller!

The VRG team is always so humbled when we can reach out and support the Central Florida community in any way possible. Year after year this race has become bigger and better with more companies and runners helping this charity event grow to what it is today!
