Crye-Leike Celebrates 39 Years of Support for Youth Villages’ 5K & 10 Miler

MEMPHIS, TENN ¬†– Crye-Leike Real Estate Services celebrates the 39th¬†consecutive year of being the top corporate donor for the Youth Villages’ 5K/10Miler. Crye-Leike had a record-breaking year, raising over $8K throughout its Memphis Region.

Youth Villages is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families live successfully through home-based counseling, therapeutic foster care, adoption services, residential treatment, community-based programs and crisis and prevention services.

The Crye-Leike Memphis area branch offices have been involved in the race every year since it began in 1982. Chris Crye, the late son of Crye-Leike Owner & CEO Harold Crye, was an avid supporter of Youth Villages. In his memory, the agents and employees of Crye-Leike carry on a tradition of caring for kids who deserve every opportunity to learn and succeed. A portion of the money raised by this race supports the Chris Crye Mentoring Program at Youth Villages.

“Youth Villages is thrilled to announce Crye-Leike as the winner of the 2021 YV5K and 10 Miler Corporate Award,” said Youth Villages Development Coordinator Chloe Alexander. “With a donation of over $8,000 and over 200 agents & employees participating, the company set a new record! Youth Villages is so thankful for Crye-Leike’s unwavering support of our mission, and we look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.”

Paula Dismuke, a member of the Youth Villages Committee and Crye-Leike employee, organized the participation and donations of the Crye-Leike branch offices. Dismuke received the prestigious Lion Heart award from Youth Villages earlier this year, in honor of her hard work and dedication to the organization.

“I am thankful to have been involved with this Youth Villages event for the past seven years and on the committee for six,” said Dismuke. “When our support was down, I sent an email, and as always, Crye-Leike’s agents and employees came through, setting a record this year! Seeing such outpouring support for Youth Villages lets me know I am part of a wonderful, giving family.”
