St. Louis office raises more than $167,000 for St. Louis charity

(St. Louis, Mo. – May 1, 2012) Duke Realty Corporation (Duke Realty) announces that it has partnered with Friends of Kids with Cancer, a St. Louis-based organization dedicated to enriching the daily lives of children undergoing treatment for cancer and blood-related diseases, to host Sunrise Celebration, an event which features Walk with a Friend at Sunrise and games and activities for children.

Sunrise Celebration is scheduled for April 28, 2012 and will be held at Maryville Centre, a Duke Realty office campus located off I-64, just west of I-270. Now in its 10th year, Walk with a Friend at Sunrise includes both a 5K run and a one-mile walk. Registration for the run/walk begins at 8 a.m., with the run starting at 9 a.m. and the walk immediately following the start of the run. Games, activities, and food also will be available for children and their families. The event is open to the community.

As part of its commitment to the event, Duke Realty has solicited support from its associates, vendors, and tenants. To date, Duke Realty has received more than $25,000 in donations, all of which will go to Friends of Kids with Cancer. In addition, Duke Realty associates and business partners will participate in the run/walk and volunteer in carnival booths. In 2011, Duke Realty raised $29,000 for Sunrise Celebration, bringing total contributions to $167,000 over the past six years.

“Duke Realty is proud to partner with Friends of Kids with Cancer in this worthwhile fund-raising event for the St. Louis community,” said Toby Martin, Senior Vice President of Duke Realty’s St. Louis operations. “All of the funds raised will be used to provide recreational, educational, and emotional support on a daily basis for young people who are battling cancer.”

“The support that Duke Realty has given our organization has been tremendous and is greatly appreciated,” said Judy Ciapciak, Executive Director of Friends of Kids with Cancer. “The use of their corporate office park, coupled with the donations they’ve solicited, are evidence of their support of the community and belief in our mission of helping kids with cancer….be kids.”
