"What struck me the most about Hope for the Warriors is that they not only provide for the wounded, but they care for the families of the fallen, too."
New York, New York (PRWEB) May 19, 2013
Precision IT will sponsor its first non-profit event, Big Apple Run for the Warriors, hosted by Hope for the Warriors, June 8th.
Hope for the Warriors’ mission is to enhance the quality of life for U.S. services members and their families. The kick-off event to Army Week NYC, Saturday June 8 – Friday June 14, 2013, the Big Apple Run will take place in New York City’s financial district, beginning at the Vietnam Veterans Plaza at 8 a.m.
Precision employees will be entering as "Team Precision IT." Participation is open to veterans, their families, and children too – running isn’t mandatory.
“We’ve always been a veteran- friendly company,” said Anthony Butler, Precision’s VP of sales. “As a 1996 West Point graduate and former commander of an infantry in Iraq, what struck me the most about Hope for the Warriors is that they not only provide for the wounded, but they care for the families of the fallen, too.”
In the competitive world of choosing the right non-profit to support, Hope for the Warriors stood out in providing hope beyond recovery.
“I was impressed by their employees’ enthusiasm and their track record of doing so much for so many,” said Shalane Layugan, Precision IT’s marketing coordinator. “We are honored to partner with such a dedicated team and look forward to expanding their efforts.”
All proceeds from the 2.5-mile run will directly fund the Hope for the Warriors programs to assist wounded service members. Anyone interested in sponsoring Team Precision IT, please visit Precision’s fundraising page.
