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.
Team Veritas could be seen running through the streets of Heathrow Thursday night, March 21st while participating in the Annual Rescue Run Corporate 5k. VRG is proud to participate in the Rescue Run where our family gives back to the community, while burning a few calories. The race benefits the Central Florida homeless shelter as the Rescue Outreach Mission hosts its 4th annual race.
The festivities took place just off of International Parkway at Oval Park where Veritas employees, friends and family members sported there pink “got talent?” shirts and running sneaks. The 3.1 mile walk/run started the philanthropic event and lead right into a wellness fair with a DJ, food, and fun activities for all. As 2 year participants, we saw the turnout overwhelmingly grow with more companies and runners joining the biggest corporate walk/run 5k in Seminole County.
As a new company in the Central Florida region, the team at Veritas wanted to start getting involved in the community. As a group we thought, “What’s a great way to get involved, have some fun and get healthy?” Little did we know we wouldn’t have to look far. One of our neighbors in our own office building hosts and coordinates Seminole County’s only Corporate 5k charity event. So this past Thursday, March 29th, we decided to get involved and participated in the Rescue Run Corporate 5k held in our own backyard in Lake Mary.
