On March 6, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program welcomed Merck as the newest member of its Veterans Employment Advisory Council (VEAC) and Military Spouse Employment Advisory Council (MSEAC).

By joining the VEAC and MSEAC National Advisory Circles, Merck is continuing its commitment to help America’s military families by connecting military men and women and their spouses to meaningful job opportunities.

Hiring Our Heroes is a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation that was launched in March 2011 as a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment.  And, according to Mark Hill, vice president, IT Account Management, Global Human Health, and Business Insight Roundtable leader for Merck’s Veterans Employee Business Resource Group, hiring veterans is good for veterans and good for Merck, stating, “Veterans are an important part of our talent pool, bringing many skills and experiences that are critical to our business.”

There are currently two different registration processes, one for the Obstacle Course Challenge, Obstacle Course Team Challenge and Kid’s Fun Run (AthletePath) and another registration process strictly for the SUP Ocean Challenge (PaddleGuru). You are welcome to register for both the SUP and Obstacle Course Challenges and we encourage doing so, but it will require two separate registrations. To be a WPA sanctioned SUP race event we were required to use PaddleGuru for registration, which will only enroll athletes for the SUP Ocean Challenge.
Online registration closes on Thursday, May 22nd, 2014. On-site registration will be available on Friday (the day before the event) and Saturday (the day of the event), but we highly recommend you pre-register to get better pricing and reserve a race t-shirt in your size.
