We are so excited to announce that Business Extension Bureau has earned our first Communitas Award. The award represents Excellence in Community Service and Corporate Social Responsibility for our Run for Rama 5K.
Communitas, a Latin word meaning the spirit of Community is an international effort to recognize corporate programs involving volunteerism, philanthropy or ethical, sustainable business practices which benefit communities. Presented by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP), this several thousand member organization hosts international competitions for marketing professionals involved with the concept, writing, or design of marketing programs using print, visual or audio.
Communitas nominees are evaluated based on the extent and effectiveness of their program. This is an international competition and previous winners include recognizable companies such as MasterCard, Honeywell, Dow Chemical, Toyota, and Vonage.
The statuette symbolizes peace and harmony and was created by the same firm that crafted the CLIOS, Golden Globes, MTV’s VMA, and Academy of Country Music Awards!
The Run for Rama 5K means a great deal to Business Extension Bureau and our “BEB Family”. We are honored and humbled to be recognized for this event which is so close to our hearts. (click here to learn more)
We are going after it again in 2019! We are gathering a team to walk/run in MD Anderson’s Sprint for Life event on May 4th. We affectionately refer to this race against Ovarian Cancer as The Run for Rama 5K to honor our 40-year associate, Rama Moore, who lost her battle with this deadly disease on Christmas day in 2017.
Last year we had over 40 participants travelling from as far away as Alaska to take part in this highly emotional and very positive event. We are trying to raise $1,200 in Rama’s memory to help combat this devastating disease. Won’t you please join us in our march against Ovarian Cancer? Join our team and walk with us on Saturday, May 4, 2019 or make a generous donation to our fund. CLICK HERE or go to runforrama.com for details and donations.
Heading to your desk right now, we hope you enjoy the latest version of The Bureau, our award winning company newsletter. Inside this issue:
HELP US RAISE MONEY TO FIGHT OVARIAN CANCER
RUN FOR RAMA – MAY 5, 2018
This race is about creating and raising awareness about ovarian cancer. It is the cancer with the lowest survival rate and has no cure. The staff of Business Extension Bureau (BEB) are raising funds and participating in this event to pay homage to Rama Moore, whom we lost on Christmas day last year to this devastating disease. Rama worked for our family owned business for over 40-years, and is missed today. Won’t you join us in helping to raise money to combat this type of cancer that often lays in wait for long periods of time before being detected. Help us to honor the life of a wonderful woman who gave so much love and was the “face and voice of BEB” for many years, our Rama Ray Moore.
Also, you don’t have to be a “BEBer” (an employee of BEB) to join us for this fabulous event. Join our team and bring the family with you to take part in this important gathering. It is a Run AND a Walk so that everybody at every fitness level can enjoy.
Our goal is to raise $1,500 – please donate as much as you can today. All donations are tax deductible. We are grateful to you.
