Closer to home, SOSi CEO Julian Setian led the company’s team of runners at the race held in Washington, D.C. He was also joined by veterans from The Mission Continues, a nonprofit that helps veterans adjusting to life at home to find purpose through community impact.
“We are privileged to support organizations making a positive impact in our community and on our armed forces and their families,” Setian said. “I look forward to running in this year’s Army Ten-Miler with my SOSi colleagues and our Mission Continues partners. Hooah!”
“The Mission Continues is excited to join SOSi for the 2016 Army Ten-Miler,” said Mary Beth Bruggeman, southeast region executive director, The Mission Continues. “While our veterans work hard throughout the year to have lasting, generational impact in their communities, this weekend we’ll bring our veterans together for a fun, memorable and inspiring run through Washington, D.C. Veterans from across the southeast region are ready to put down their work this weekend and join with SOSi to support the Army Ten-Miler.”
This first annual Taji 10-Miler gives the troops and civilians serving in Iraq a chance to join in on the Army Ten-Miler from across the globe. SOSi’s racing team in Taji will be led by retired Lt. Gen. Frank Helmick, SOSi’s vice president for the mission solutions group.
“Deployments are never easy,” Helmick said. “Being separated from friends and family is something each soldier shares with one another regardless of nationality. Fitness is another common bond and that is why we planned the Taji 10-Miler run. We look forward to providing these troops a small reminder of home this weekend as we run the Taji 10-Miler together with our battle buddies around the globe and at home in D.C. I am honored to run alongside them.”
