One of the charities we at Mission Solutions Group, Inc. have chosen to support is Hostage US. We met them through one of our advisors (COL, Retired, Chris Costa) and find they are a remarkable band of dedicated folks that do wonderful work in support of American hostages and families.
The below is from their website (www.hostageus.org):
"Each year, an estimated 200 Americans are kidnapped overseas. Their families suffer in silence and returning hostages face months of recovery to rebuild their lives. Hostage US offers hostages and their families the support they need to survive this terrifying ordeal."
The funds they raise through this "... will be used for the direct support of hostages and their families. Hostage US aims to ensure that they get the assistance they need and provides support free of charge."
We are participating in this 5K run to generate support for this organization and will have a team of MSG associates participating in the run. We thank you in advance for your support and appreciate any sponsorship you can provide.
