MEMPHIS, TENN. - Crye-Leike Real Estate Services celebrates its 40th consecutive year as the top corporate donor for the Youth Villages annual 5K. Crye-Leike had a record-breaking year, raising a total of $10,500 throughout its Memphis region.

The event was held on Saturday, Oct. 22. Several Crye-Leike affiliates participated, including CEO and Founder Harold Crye.

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 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.

Paula Dismuke, a Crye-Leike employee and member of the Youth Villages Committee, organized the company's participation and donations. She has served on the committee for the past seven years and is thankful to have been involved in the event for eight years.

"Seeing such an outpouring of support for Youth Villages reminds me what a wonderful, giving family I have in Crye-Leike," said Dismuke. "Our agents and employees really came through, beating last year's record and setting yet another record this year. I'm so grateful to everyone who participated."
