Unfortunately, Someone You Love May Get a Ride in BKD’s Corporate Jet

Unfortunate because that means they’re really sick. What’s not unfortunate is the firm has joined Corporate Angel Network (“CAN”) and has opted to make their plane available to give free rides to cancer and bone marrow transplant patients that have to travel for treatments.

Each week, CAN enters BKD’s flight schedule into its database and arranges travel for patients when routes match up and seats are available.

“The Corporate Angel Network offers us a great chance to use our company airplane to positively affect the lives of others,” BKD CEO Neal Spencer said. “We’re proud to be able to participate in this program as part of our continuing effort to serve the communities that are home to our offices and employees.”
