On March 21, 2015, SFMC came out to support the 23rd Annual Van Metre 5-Mile Run and One-Mile Fun Run/Walk; which benefited the Childrens National Medical Center. Serious runners, weekend and occasional joggers, walkers, and even strollers (for One-Mile Fun Run/Walk only) of all skill levels were invited to participate.
SFMC gave their support to the cause and connected with many sponsors and fellow businesses in the area. SFMC raced with the best of them like Platinum Exteriors Inc., Doug Barham – Director of Construction/Sales, who also participated in this wonderful cause!
The president and CEO, Rick Rabil, of the Van Metre Companies had this video created to show just how much businesses care about giving back to their communities. Through the sponsorships and participation in this year’s race, the event was able to raise over $140,000 for the Childrens National Medical Center.
