equaTEK is a sponsor of the East Rochester Karknocker 5K Race & Walk supporting the Finger Lakes Regional Burn Association.
equaTEK Interactive, since moving to East Rochester, has become actively involved in their new Upstate New York community including helping to sponsor the East Rochester Karknocker 5K Race & Walk. This is the first year the host - East Rochester Chamber of Commerce - has worked in conjunction with the Finger Lakes Regional Burn Association to help individuals who suffer injuries emotionally and physically from fires.
A major percentage of the proceeds from the 5K will be donated to FLRBA, who then distributes funding to individuals and families - beginning the day of the fire and sometimes continuing throughout the victims’ lives. FLRBA supplies physical and emotional support for all age victims who have suffered the tragedies and multiple ramifications of being burned. From summer camps for all ages to counseling to organizing what families need, the FLRBA has been there for local people for over 30 years.
EquaTEK Interactive, along with other East Rochester Chamber members, have sponsored the Karknocker 5K Race & Walk to help support the community, the Chamber, and FLRBA.
