The Burger King McLamore Foundation will be holding the fifth annual Burger King Beach Run! This event will include a 5K, 10K, and Kiddie Dash which will all conclude with our blow-out beach bash. Truly a community event, the BKSM Beach Run will bring together more than 2,500 community members to run for education.
The mission of the Foundation is to create brighter futures by empowering individuals and feeding potential through education and emergency relief. Every year we raise money to provide scholarships to high school students and Burger King employees to help offset the cost of attending college. To date, we have awarded more than 30,000 scholarships to students and BK employees throughout North America.
The best part about the BK Beach Run? All funds raised from the event stay in the community and benefit students in Miami-Dade County. In 2016, with the support of the community, we were able to award more than 200 scholarships to Miami-Dade County high school seniors.
