We all go to ISC West every year with an attitude of maximizing our meetings with prospective and existing partners and customers, and surviving a week of long hours and little sleep.  It’s certainly no different this year except that we have an opportunity to all get together and do something good.  When I first read about it, I jumped at the opportunity.

I’m talking about The Security 5K, a race that will be held on the 2nd morning of the show to benefit Mission 500,  whose goal is to get the security industry to sponsor 500 children-in-need through the World Vision humanitarian organization.  The Security 5K at the 2010 ISC West Expo is a first-of-a-kind event hosted in Vegas for the security industry as a whole, and is a joint collaboration between United Publications, publisher of Security Systems News and Security Director News; Reed Exhibitions, proprietors of ISC West; and Mission 500.

The run will take place on March 25th of the show from 7:30 – 8:30 am and will be extensively promoted by Mission 500, ISC West and Security Systems News. Runners will be able to register for a nominal $30 fee and ALL proceeds raised will go to charity.  Mission 500 has to date raised more than $115,000 from various sponsors and supporters from the security industry. 

For a buck a day we can help feed, educate and cater to a needy child’s health care needs.  For those of us fortunate enough to possess good health and a small amount of disposable income (that we might otherwise lose at the tables!) this is truly an opportunity to transform lives.
