2019 Around the World Run Results

The Friends of Civil Affairs (FOCA) Around the World Run is a 5k/10k event dedicated to the global mission of Civil Affairs Soldiers and their Families. The event will take place on the Yarborough Complex at Fort Bragg, North Carolina simultaneously with the 95th Civil Affairs Brigade (Airborne) Multicultural Expo. This event will raise funds for the FOCA Scholarship Fund that awards merit-based scholarships to spouses and children.

The Multicultural event will highlight the global mission of Civil Affairs units. The Civil Affairs units will have displays that highlight their mission and Soldiers will answer questions on the unique nature of their Special Operations mission. Cultural performances will be held throughout the event and ethnic food will be available for purchase. Additional information will be added as performances are confirmed.

About the Cause

Friends of Civil Affairs (FOCA) is a 501(C)(19) Veterans Organization that supports the morale and welfare of the Soldiers and Families of the Active Component Civil Affairs Regiment. Support is provided through Scholarships, Soldier Programs, Family Programs, and a Memorial Fund. The Scholarship Fund provides merit based scholarships for spouses and dependent children of FOCA members. Soldier Programs recognize Soldiers who exceed standards within the Civil Affairs Qualification Course and other education and mission oriented events. Family Programs supports Civil Affairs Family Readiness Groups through unsolicited donations that increase the resiliency of spouses and children. The Memorial Fund supports the families of Soldiers who were killed while deployed in support of our Nation and purchases paver stones displayed at the Airborne Special Operations Museum.
