MaxSys Participates in Canada Army Run
Yesterday, MaxSys Staffing and Consulting along with over 25,000 participants who ran, walked and rolled through the National Capital Region in the annual Canada Army Run. During the race, Canadian Armed Forces personnel and ill and injured soldiers were accompanied by participants of all ages and abilities.
This year, the Battle of Normandy was recognized by the Normandy Challenge, which had participants doing the 5K and the 10K. This new challenge event joined the well-established Commander’s Challenge of the 5K followed by the 21.1K.
From the cannon used as a “starter’s pistol” to the “dog-tag” medals soldiers place around all participants necks at the finish line, this unique event is “military” from start to finish..
The Canada Army Run has raised millions of dollars for Soldier On, which provides assistance to ill and injured soldiers and military families in need. Congratulations to the participants and many thanks to the organizers and volunteers. As the military always say, we are all part of a very special family and fraternity. This event brings all of us together, to run and walk and celebrate our heroes, our country and our freedom.
