Sponsor Spotlight: Ben & Jerry’s

Posted on May 19, 2014 · Posted in News, Sponsors

Ben & Jerry’s Social Mission: To operate the Company in a way that actively recognizes the central role that business plays in society by initiating innovative ways to improve the quality of life locally, nationally, and internationally.

“This one statement was the reason I got involved with Ben & Jerry’s.” says Kari Conner, owner of Ben & Jerry’s in Spokane. “Spokenya Run is the perfect international opportunity to make a difference.”

Seeing the sea of runners take off for the 3 mile run with the propose of providing clean water to a community miles away is inspiring! Being able to scoop Ben & Jerry’s ice cream as a “thank you” to the runners is my small way of being involved. Thank you Spokenya for allowing me to participate.
