BCI Aircraft Leasing Signs on as Silver Sponsor of 2008 Komen Chicago Race

CHICAGO — BCI Aircraft Leasing (BCI) will serve as a Silver Sponsor in the 2008 Komen Chicago Race, scheduled to take place at the city’s lakefront on Sept. 27. Susan G. Komen for the Cure saves lives, empowers people, ensures quality care for all and energizes science to find the cures for breast cancer.

“We are proud to come together as a team to support this important cause which touches so many lives,” said Brian Hollnagel, BCI president and CEO.

BCI local employees, families and friends, will take part in the event, which includes a 5K run/walk. The walk is expected to include as many as 10,000 participants. In addition to the company’s financial support, each individual participating on BCI’s behalf will conduct his or her own fundraising initiative at varying levels.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists in the fight against breast cancer.

BCI Aircraft Leasing, Inc. was founded in 1997 and has become one of commercial aviation’s leading privately-held operating leasing companies. BCI provides airlines with financial products and services to help them achieve their financial and fleet planning goals. BCI’s customer list includes Air Canada, Air France, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Swiss International Air Lines, US Airways, and other prominent air carriers around the world.

Bringing employees and their families together to walk/run for a great cause is an excellent way for BCI to demonstrate its philanthropy in Chicago. It's nice to see the company taking an active role not only as a sponsor, but also as an active participant in the event.
