Baxter Auto has sponsored the Memorial Day Run for nearly 30 years.
The 2015 Boys Town Memorial Day Run was held on Monday, May 25th. Even though the weather was overcast, the energy from each of the runners was amazing.
The Memorial Day Run consists of three separate races:
- 400-meter Kid’s Fun Run
- 1 mile Walk/Run
- 5 mile Walk/Run
Baxter sponsored the 5 mile walk/run. Along with a kids coloring at tattoo table, we had some new Baxter cars on display.
Proceeds from the run benefited the Center for Childhood Deafness, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of children who are hard of hearing, deaf or live with other communication disorders.
At the event, Baxter also held a shoe drive with all donations distributed to Omaha-area charities.
The relationship between Baxter and Boys Town continues with other sponsorships for the Boys Town Healthy Kids Carnival and the Newborn Expo.
