By Community | October 21, 2014
First Command Financial Services, viagra cheap | Inc., announced today its sponsorship of the 39th Marine Corps Marathon (MCM), continuing the company’s proud history of supporting “The People’s Marathon.”
About 30,000 runners are expected to take part in this year’s marathon on Oct. 26 in Arlington, Va. And First Command’s sponsorship dollars will support several popular elements of the annual event.
First Command is the presenting sponsor of the Carbo Dining In, the MCM’s annual pre-event pasta dinner at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. The company will also participate in the marathon’s Health & Fitness Expo, a three-day event that is expected to attract more than 100,000 runners and visitors.
“Again this year, First Command is proud to play a supporting role in this outstanding athletic event,” said Scott Spiker, CEO of First Command. “We consider it a great honor to be affiliated with ‘The People’s Marathon,’ and we look forward to joining the tens of thousands of volunteers and fans who will be cheering on the runners as they make their way through the heart of our nation’s capital. We view our ongoing support of this event as a clear demonstration of the sense of partnership we feel with all of the armed forces.”
First Command’s relationship with the MCM began in 1998 when more than 170 First Command employees and their families volunteered to assist nearly 15,000 runners.
