Last year’s Brinks Home Security 5K raised more than $52,000 and benefitted children at Farmers Branch Elementary.

Brinks Home Security is partnering with Mission 500 for the company’s 4th Annual Brinks Home Security 5K on Saturday, Oct.19, 2019, in Farmers Branch, Texas. Proceeds from the event will benefit children attending Farmers Branch Elementary, Habitat for Humanity Dallas, and children living in poverty across the United States.

Last year’s Brinks Home Security 5K raised more than $52,000 and benefitted children at Farmers Branch Elementary, in addition to helping families displaced by the Northern California fires, and students attending a Title One School in Boynton Beach, Fla. In addition, Brinks was named the Primary Sponsor of the Lighthouse Program, which benefits Title One Schools in Houston.

“Our ability to help children and families in need would not be possible without annual events such as the Brinks Home Security 5K,” says Tom Nolan, Director of Strategic Partnerships for Mission 500. “Proceeds from this event have made a positive difference in many lives, and we are proud to work with Brinks Home Security again this year.

The race is open to people of all ages. Participants can register now and see more information at brinkshomesecurity5k.com. Registration is $35 afterward. Cash prizes and trophies are planned for the top finishers in several categories.

Mission 500, a nonprofit charitable organization that works closely with the security industry to serve the needs of children and communities in crisis, is once again partnering with Brinks Home Security for this year’s event.

Corporate sponsorships are available at the Platinum, Gold and Silver levels, and in-kind sponsorships (product donations) are also encouraged. Sponsor benefits include a table at the event, company logo on event marketing materials, verbal recognition, and the opportunity to increase the sponsor’s profile within the local community.
