CST team members recently participated in the annual Tysons 5K Run for Food for Others; a 4 star charity helping to fight hunger in the nation’s wealthiest region. With each registration, proceeds helped provide milk and eggs for 15 families. In addition to the runners, other CST team members made monetary contributions.
