ORLANDO, Fla., June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and 8(a) Certified Advanced IT Concepts, Inc. (AITC) understands what it means to "Serve". With more than 50% of its employees being veterans, AITC recognized that an opportunity to give back to soldiers was a cause they would proudly support. As a Gold Level sponsor of Operation Giveback's Second Annual Run/Walk/Roll, a 5K/10K event held on May 12th at the University of Central Florida, AITC and its partners set up tents and distributed water bottles to help support this worthy cause, which provides financial support to our nation's wounded warriors.
"As a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, I can appreciate the enormous challenges both our wounded warriors and their families endure," says Gabe Ruiz, President of AITC. According to Ruiz, AITC will continue to seek opportunities to help military veterans who have risked their lives to secure the freedoms we enjoy today. "The footprint of the United States would look quite different without our military," says Ruiz. "I am blessed we were able to give back to our heroes through AITC, and through our partners, Immix / Brocade, Crestron and Integration Wiring." AITC has already committed to supporting this event in 2013 and is looking forward to providing larger financial support.
"OGB is about giving back to our heroes," says Retired CSM Jose Garcia Aponte, founder of OGB. "However, this would not be possible without the generosity of our volunteers and sponsors. AITC not only provided Gold Level sponsorship, but they also sponsored one of our wounded warriors, providing much needed financial and moral support. It is because of these efforts and sacrifices, and thru partners like AITC, that we can continue to 'raise awareness and resources for our Wounded Warriors, their families, and the children of our FALLEN HEROES.'"
The inaugural Operation Giveback Run/Walk/Roll raised over $40,000 in 2010. This year's event more than doubled that record generating over $90,000 with the participation of over 2,100 supporters. For more information on how to become involved, visit www.operation-giveback.com.
