Board of County Commissioners 9/1/2009 1E2 Presented
REPORT: Commissioner Diaz introduced Dr. Robert Pickard, retired Colonel, US Army Medical Corp. Dr. Pickard spoke about the Eighth Annual 5K Military Run to be held on Sunday, February 7, 2010. He noted this event would honor the military men and women currently serving or having served in any military branch fighting the war on terrorism. Dr. Pickard said approximately 2,000 people were expected to participate in this event and he requested that each commissioner allocate $2,500 for the event from their discretionary budgets. These funds would be used to increase awareness of the organization and its efforts on behalf of the troops and their families for their military commitment, said Dr. Pickard. He distributed information packages to the commissioners. Commissioner Diaz emphasized the importance of community support for the military. He noted programs including the Wounded Warrior Project, Operation Brave Kids and the Armed Forces Center were special to him. Commissioner Diaz committed $5,000 toward the event and encouraged his colleagues to consider making donations.
