Giving back at ISC West

 - 
Wednesday, January 29, 2020

I always liked the proverb, “see the forest for the trees,” as it speaks to a phenomenon that happens far too often these days in society — not seeing the bigger picture because we are so focused on the minutia of the day.

With thousands of security professionals converging on Las Vegas for ISC West, March 17-21, and hustling and bustling around to the millions of appointments and meetings, closing deals and making the almighty dollar, I feel that many times, we can't see the forest for the trees.

For the purposes of this rant, the forest, or the bigger picture, is the responsibility we each have to give back to an industry that has given us so much.

And, what is amazing about ISC West is the abundance of opportunities to give back, individually or on a corporate level, with either time or money.

One organization in particular, Mission 500, is really making it easy for individuals and companies to give back by participating in the 11th Annual Mission 500 5k/2k charity event.

The Security 5k/2k fundraiser at ISC West 2020 will be held on Thursday, March 19th, at 2601 East Sunset Road, in Las Vegas, Nev., and will benefit children and families in need across the United States. Registration to participate in this year’s event is open and can be accessed by visiting www.security5kreg.com. For those who are unable to attend or participate in the physical event, you can sign up and donate as a virtual runner or walker.

“2020 marks our eleventh year hosting the Security 5k/2k and we want to thank all of the previous participants and sponsors who have made the last 10 years a tremendous success,” said Tom Nolan, director of Strategic Partnerships, Mission 500. “We can’t wait for this year’s event and hope to meet a wide array of new security industry participants, reconnect with prior ones, and have a great time while supporting this worthwhile cause.”

The Security 5K/2K is a joint collaboration organized by United Publications, the publisher of Security Systems News, ISC Events and Mission 500. To become a sponsor of the Security 5k/2k event, please click here or contact Tom Nolan via email at tnolan@mission500.org.

Confirmed charter sponsors include Alarm.com, Altronix Corporation, Axis Communications, Bosch Security Systems, BRINKS Home Security, CMAC, COPS Monitoring, Dahua Technology, DMP, Freeman, Galaxy Control Systems, HID Global, Hikvision, LENSEC, LRG Marketing Communications, Milestone Systems, Napco Starlink, PSA Security Network, Safety Technology International, Inc. and ZKTeco USA.

As Nolan points out, the goal is get more people and companies involved and increase the amount of money raised each year. Last year, Mission 500 was able to raise more than $145,000 with the event, and with your help we can surpass that number this year.

Here’s hoping you see the forest for the trees.
