On a rainy Saturday, September 23, 2023, Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad members supported the 11th Annual Dulles 5K/10K run with a Paramedic-staffed Advance Life Support ambulance and our Gator Utility Task Vehicle. The run is an annual fund-raising event, with proceeds supporting the Committee for Dulles Community Outreach–Dulles Airport Scholarship Program, Special Olympics Virginia, and the Washington Airports Task Force.
Live Dulles Airport runways are shut down for a short period to support the flat and fast run. It rained this year, but that did not stop the runners or Sterling Rescue. Sterling Rescue members Erik Hanna, Kate Passow, Alex Venuti and In Weirick braved the elements to support the event.
