June 5, 2014 – From our Race Coordinator and the rest of the staff of The Arc of Northern Virginia:

“Thank you all so much for participating in the 2014 race (36th Annual Patriots’ Cup Corporate Challenge 5K) to benefit The Arc of Northern VA!  I hope everyone had a good time!  The weather was perfect!  We appreciate your enthusiasm for the race and for organizing your teams.  I know this is not an easy task!  It was really fun to see so many runners wearing different colors of Patriots’ Cup shirts. You can tell how long some of you have been running by the rainbow of shirt colors over the years!

We were so happy to welcome new companies this year – Don Beyer Volvo-Kia, Logos Technologies, and L’Arche of Greater Washington DC.  We’re grateful for your support and hope that you enjoyed your first Patriots’ Cup Race!
Thank you also to all of those companies and community groups who have continued their support this year.  We truly appreciate your generosity!  Thank you to Mark & Helen Russell from Metro, Run & Walk and the Springfield 5K for hosting us this year.  And last but not least, we could not have reached our fund raising goal without the support from our Finish Line Sponsors.
