Foster Kids 5k Raises Over $14K to Send Local Foster Kids to Summer Camp

Revel Consulting's Insights and Expertise Help Another Run Raise Funds for Hope Alliance for Kids

KIRKLAND, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2014) - On Aug. 2, 325 participants came together to run and raise $14,500 for local foster kids. All net profits benefit the Hope Alliance for Kids.

The Foster Kids 5k was founded by David and Adrienne Oliphant in 2009. In its six years, the run has garnered $90,000 in cumulative net profit and involved over 1,500 participants.

"Being runners ourselves, we were divinely inspired to use our gifts and relationships to help support an amazing cause," said Adrienne Oliphant. "It gives local foster children a place to go to feel safe, loved, encouraged and, most importantly, hope."

Through its Sustainable Giving program, Revel Consulting has worked closely with the Foster Kids 5k for all six years. Beyond giving monetary support and race day volunteers, Revel also provides pro-bono consulting services.

"We try to ensure the Foster Kids 5k and the other non-profits we support can sustain their cause long-term," said Vikas Kamran, Revel's CEO. "So, we're happy to lend the insights and skills our associates have to offer."

This year, the insights and skills provided included design and registration support.

The Hope Alliance for Kids provides camp programs and support to foster children and their families. Their goal is for every foster child, between the ages of seven and fifteen, in King County to be able to attend a summer camp filled with life changing experiences and love. They focus on meeting the needs of abused and neglected children.

Hope Alliance for Kids' website cites 10,000 kids are in Washington State's foster care system.

The Foster Kids 5k was supported by a strong list of sponsors alongside Revel Consulting including: Alaska Airlines, BlackRock, Raise the Bar, Papé, Engineered Products, Eastridge Church, Seattle Travel, Honest Tea, Whole Foods, Naked, Prowess, Photo Orchard, Sahale Snacks, everyone by one, Tony Maroni's Pizza, Columbia Athletic Clubs, Haggen Food Grocery Store.
