Branded Group Hosts #Be Better Together Virtual 5K

Donations Benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County

Orange, CA. (May 14th, 2020) – Branded Group Founder and CEO Michael Kurland recently announced that the company will host its first Virtual 5K in support of their non-profit partner, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Anyone, anywhere, can participate in the virtual 5k being held from June 1st-June 7th. While the registration is free, donations to Second Harvest Food Bank are encouraged. Register and donate at

“The Branded Group team remains committed to its non-profit partner, Second Harvest, particularly during this crucial time when many more families are facing food insecurity,” Kurland said. “By hosting a virtual 5K, our team and their family and friends, along with our customers and vendors, can come together to make a difference for those who are most in need.”

Second Harvest provides healthy meals to more than 250,000 people each month. In 2019, more than 26.5 million meals were made available to Orange County residents. Last year, Branded Group team members, through Second Harvest’s Adopt a Pantry, distributed 7,655 pounds of food to 300 local families.

The event, dubbed the “Be Better Together 5K,” seeks to promote community and connection in the midst of COVID-19. Scheduled for the week of June 1st – June 7th, participants are invited to walk, run, or bike 3.1 miles in their respective neighborhoods. They can choose to complete the 5K in one day or over the course of the week.

Once the free registration is complete, participants can print out a customized 5K race bib. To promote the event and gain additional support for Second Harvest, Branded Group is encouraging participants to share their race photos on social media, tagging the company and using the hashtag #BeBetterTogether5K in their posts.
