July 2016 – On July 4th members of SOSi’s Reston headquarters team honored troops serving around the world at the USO-Metro Firecracker 5K for the Troops. As a major sponsor of the event, SOSi helped raise money for important programs and services the USO provides active duty troops and their families, those serving overseas and at area military hospitals, including through its Mobile USO program, five USO Centers, four USO airport lounges and Operation USO Care Package.
In its 7th year, the race brings together runners from throughout the region, many racing in Red, White and Blue. It includes a “Battle of the Branches” competition and family fun run, as well as group competitions. SOSi’s racing team finished 7th in the corporate team competition!
Our racing team now heads into full Army 10-Miler race training in preparation for the October event, which kicks off the annual AUSA Convention and Exposition. Look for SOSi at both of those upcoming events!
