Goal: $12,000

Help us raise $12,000 this year for research for cancers affecting women and
to end the epidemic of domestic violence.

The Dazzling Dream Team Unit is proud to announce that we are hosting our 12th Annual MK5K-Killeen, part of the Centex Race Series, with proceeds benefiting The Mary Kay Ash FoundationSM.

We are enlisting your help to make this event a success.  Together, we can change the lives of women and families in the Central Texas Community, and nationwide!  We are hosting a Live Race Event on Saturday, Oct 12th.

Locally, we’ve raised over $65,000 for The Mary Kay Ash Foundation since we’ve begun in 2013. This year’s goal is to raise at least $12,000. Included in this packet, are the various ways you can help us out.

Let’s aid this amazing foundation in their continuing endeavor to find a cure for cancer and raise awareness on domestic violence.  The Mary Kay Ash FoundationSM was created in 1996, and its mission is two-fold: to fund research of cancers affecting women and to help prevent domestic violence while raising awareness of the issue. Since 1996, the Mary Kay Ash FoundationSM has contributed more than $96 million to organizations aligned with its two-fold mission. In addition, the Foundation supports awareness initiatives, community outreach programs, and advocates for legislation to ensure women are healthy and safe. Through its global charitable foundations in Brazil, Canada, China and the United States, TMKAF collectively makes a deeper impact on the lives of women around the world. More than 97% of each donated dollar goes to the missions. Locally, Texas Families in Crisis has received grants from The Mary Kay Ash Foundation.

We are gratefully accepting monetary donations, door prizes, gift certificates, volunteers, and MORE!

Please review the Sponsorship Package options attached, and choose the best fit for your business. You may also visit our website at killeenmk5k.org to sponsor and support.

Sincerely,
Darlene D. D. Beckett
