Grapevine, TX, September 18, 2013 — Buchanan Technologies, a leading enterprise IT services and solutions firm, is excited to announce they will be supporting and participating in the 9th annual MK5K® and One Mile Fun Run, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5 at Mary Kay’s corporate headquarters in Addison, Texas.
Supporting and participating in the MK5K® has become a long-standing tradition for Buchanan Technologies. The Mary Kay Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that funds research of cancers affecting women and helps prevent domestic violence through programs and services offered. This year marks the ninth year that The Mary Kay Foundation has held the annual run/walk fundraising event.
“One of our core values at Buchanan Technologies is ‘Community Matters,’” said Jim Buchanan, CEO and Founder of Buchanan Technologies. “Since The Mary Kay Foundation started the 5k, our employees have volunteered their time to cook a pancake breakfast for all race participants, giveaway prizes, and participate in the race too.”
And this year is no exception for Buchanan Technologies and its employees.
“We’re always honored to be invited back to support the Mary Kay 5k and One-mile Fun Run,” said Buchanan. “Mary Kay is an organization in the DFW business community that we’ve built a strong relationship with over the years. We really believe in what The Mary Kay Foundation supports and stands for.”
In the early hours of October 5, Buchanan Technologies and its team of volunteers will be out in full force, supporting the Mary Kay 5k and One Mile Fun Run and getting breakfast ready for this year’s race participants.
