CTS Supports Sacramento’s Run To Feed The Hungry Thanksgiving Day Fun Run
Author: Marik Knapp
This past Thanksgiving, Capitol Tech Solutions (CTS) participated in the annual Sacramento Run to Feed the Hungry. The fun run supports the efforts of the Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS), which provides food, clothing, education and hope to 157,000 men, women and children each month.
The annual event features a 5k and 10k run through the streets of Sacramento on Thanksgiving morning. Members of the CTS team that participated in this year’s fun run include Bobby Reed along with his wife, Erin, his daughter Mila and two sons Eli and Isaac. Steve Reed Jr, Zach Hatton, Dinh Le, Jeremy Hass as well as his two sons James and Mark also participated in the run. When asked about the run Jeremy Hawes had the following to say:
"I really enjoy that as company we participate in these charitable events together and that Bobby (Reed, CEO of CTS) prioritizes opportunities for us to give back instead of making them an afterthought,” said CTS Lead Front-end Developer Jeremy Hawes. “I am looking forward to next year’s fun run as well as the other charitable events we have planned this upcoming year."
2018 marked the 25th anniversary of the run since its debut on Thanksgiving Day of 1994. In that time, the run has grown from 796 participants to nearly 30,000, making it the largest Thanksgiving Day fun run in the entire country.
"The Run to Feed the Hungry is an amazing event that has become a Thanksgiving Day tradition,” said Bobby Reed, CEO of Capitol Tech Solutions. “The run provides an excellent opportunity to support the efforts of the Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services and the run itself is just a great way to start Thanksgiving."
