GRAPEVINE, TEXAS (September 18, 2020) – Buchanan Technologies is proud to announce its participation in the 16th Annual MK5K® event to be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020. The MK5K® is a fundraising event hosted by The Mary Kay Foundation℠, a foundation whose two-fold mission includes funding research to cure cancers affecting women and ending domestic violence against women. This is Buchanan’s 16th consecutive year to participate in this fundraising event, serving as a Diamond-level sponsor each year.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing protocols, this year’s MK5K® will be held virtually for the first time ever. This allows participants to join in the fun from wherever they are, while still helping to support and raise funds for The Mary Kay Foundation℠.

A statement on the MK5K® website says, “During the virtual event you can join us online to engage with other participants and we will have some special guests as well. While we won’t all be in person this year, we want to make sure we can come together as a community and help support the special causes so close to our hearts.”

“It has always been my vision to build a company that supports the community. We built Buchanan Technologies on the premise that we would do more than just work – We would care about people and aim to improve the lives of those in our communities,” said Buchanan Technologies’ Founder & CEO, Jim Buchanan. “The team enjoys this event each year to support The Mary Kay Foundation’s efforts, and we look forward to participating in the first-ever virtual 5K.”
