Brinks Home Security™ has always been a huge supporter of Mission 500. For the past two years, they have sponsored a special 5K run/walk, with the proceeds benefiting Mission 500. Last year, thanks to the support of sponsors, donors, and participants, we smashed our goal of $25,000 and raised just over $36,000 for children in need.

We’re happy to say, it’s that time again! This year’s Brinks Home Security 5K is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 13, at 8 a.m. at the company’s headquarters in Farmers Branch, Texas.  If you want to participate – whether it’s running or walking – go to Early-bird registration is only $30 until Sept. 29, and $35 up until 7 a.m. on race day.

Jeff Gardner, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brinks Home Security, is passionate about running, having participated in a number of marathons over the years. Thankfully, he and everyone at the company are also passionate about giving back to the community.

“Our business is saving lives and protecting property, and we take that responsibility very seriously,” he said. “But we also understand our role as a community leader, and we’re dedicated to that as well. That’s why we enjoy organizing the 5K. It lets us create a tremendous positive impact, and everyone has a great time while we’re doing it.”

We’re incredibly thankful to be supported by Brinks Home Security and our other security industry partners. They continue to amaze us with their time, spirit, and generosity.
