NT Concepts, a leading data and technology solutions innovator for the Intelligence and Defense communities, announced today that it raised over $10,800 for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) at the 2023 Armed Forces Cycling Challenge (AFCC).
The AFCC, held in Crystal City, VA, is an amateur cycling event open to cyclists of all abilities that raises money for TAPS, a nonprofit organization that provides support to families of fallen service members. NT Concepts had a team of 30 cyclists, including one virtual rider, who completed a total of 183 laps, or 1,135 miles. The NTC team finished third overall for total laps and sixth overall for fastest team.

The funds raised by Team NTC and the other AFCC race participants play a vital role in supporting children who are navigating the challenging journey of losing a parent. This year, the funds will enable TAPS to provide specialized youth programs, offering valuable support and guidance to young individuals during their healing process.
TAPS is a nonprofit organization that provides compassionate care and comprehensive resources for those grieving the death of a military or veteran loved one. Since 1994, TAPS has served over 80,000 families through a variety of services, including grief counseling, financial assistance, and peer support.
Additionally, NT Concepts was the corporate sponsor for the Amy D Foundation Cycling Team. The Amy D Foundation is a nonprofit that “encourages and supports young women through cycling, inspiring the celebration of healthy challenge and empowering the confident pursuit of lofty dreams.”
