ManTech Marches for Babies
ManTech staff raised more than $1,500 for the March of Dimes by participating in the organization’s March for Babies in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The mission of the March of Dimes is “to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.” Each year, more than half a million babies are born prematurely, and more than 120,000 babies are born with serious birth defects. Premature birth is also the number one cause of newborn death. The five-mile walk raised a total of $80,000, which will support the development of treatments and programs to help more babies begin healthy lives.

Cycling Team Raises Thousands to Support American Diabetes Association

ManTech’s Cycling Team is doing something about it. For the third year in a row, ManTech participated in the National Capital Region Tour de Cure for the American Diabetes Association (ADA). The team exceeded the participation and fundraising goals with 14 team members and $6,145 in donations.
ManTech Helps Fisher House Foundation Support Wounded Soldiers
The Fisher House Foundation thanked ManTech for its generous donation of $10,000. The Fisher House program is a unique private–public partnership that supports America's military and troops. Soldiers and their families are stationed worldwide and often need to travel some distance to obtain specialized medical care; Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes" that allow family members to stay nearby during hospitalization for illness or injury. David Coker, president of Fisher House Foundation, said in a letter that ManTech's donation is "even more meaningful as our thoughts and prayers are with America’s service men and women who are deployed throughout the world. The military and veterans' families, who will benefit from your thoughtfulness, join me in expressing our collective appreciation for your generosity."
