On Saturday morning, May 10, 2014, Innovative Defense Technologies (IDT) participated in the 5th Annual Semper Fi 5K in Washington, DC. A large number of employees from several of IDT’s offices joined about 600 others who ran or walked in the event, which was held at 9am in Anacostia Park.

Following the race, event organizers acknowledged winners in various categories. IDT’s own Teddy Kidd and Vinny Vallarine finished first and second respectively in their age group. Back at the office, the company gathered to recognize employees who participated. Each year, IDT takes part in a 5K, which serves as a competitive team-building event for the company.
