BKA Content Sponsors 10th Annual Operation Smile 5k Fun Run
In July of this year, BKA Content had the opportunity to be a sponsor for the 10th Annual Operation Smile 5k Fun Run. This is an event we’ve been sponsoring for the last 5 years, and hope to continue to do so for many years to come.
Operation Smile is an organization that dedicates itself to repairing cleft palates and lips for children who can’t afford the surgery themselves. Cleft lips and palates make it hard for children to smile, speak, and even eat. All proceeds from the event go directly to the cause. Overall, the event raised over $5,338; enough to give new smiles to 22 children!
The race was held on July 22, 2017 at Jensen Nature Park in Syracuse, UT. It’s a beautiful setting for a race, complete with a large duck pond and bridge, mountains in the background, and a paved trail that’s stroller-friendly. The event activities included the 10th Annual Operation Smile 5k, the Kid’s 1K run, the 1-Mile walk, as well as a gazebo filled with snacks and treats where a raffle was held after the race. We had a number of BKA team members there, and we really enjoyed the experience:
“There really is no better feeling than that of helping others in need. The race was a blast, the atmosphere was fun and it’s nice to know that kids in our community can benefit from something like this.” – Caleb Shepherd, Account Manager at BKA Content
