MarFirst Fed showed up last Sunday for Old Dominion Racing‘s challenging 2022 Virginia Marathon course – that just kept going up (and down). Everyone finished strong with Sovandaro leading the way to a Men’s 2nd place overall in the 10K, Eric with an age-group 3d in the Marathon, and Mathivanan and Naresh with solid finishes in the 5K. Out on course, our shirts were pretty popular, and we were all proud to donate $1000 to benefit Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund at the end of the day.
Thanks to the employees who signed up for this event – this team gets it done!!!
Some of the team based in Merrifield got together to chill, compare our new run shoes, and pick up snazzy shirts – delivered just in time from Germany. Our charity runners this year are (from left to right – Mathivanan, Eric, Sovandaro, and Naresh).
MarFirst Fed gives back to veterans and their families and is supporting the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. This charity focuses on helping United States military personnel experiencing the invisible wounds of war: traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS).
MarFirst Fed has entered in various distance events for the Virginia Marathon (that sponsors Intrepid Fallen Heroes) scheduled November 13 in Middleburg Virginia, to include the 26.2 mile marathon and Bull Run mountain as part of the course. MarFirst Fed will make a donation in the name of each company participant – and each MarFirst runner will get two sets of running shoes of their choice (one for training and one for the event) and entry fee.
