HealthCorps Donor of the Month:  BK Boreyko BK Boreyko, Founder and CEO of Vemma and a HealthCorps Advisory Board Member, has been a major HealthCorps sponsor and friend since shortly after its inception. He has donated over $650,000 to their health movement, which helped HealthCorps launch the school program in Phoenix, AZ in 2009. In addition to contributing monies, his marketing staff donated countless hours by working closely with HealthCorps on digital and non-digital activities.

BK’s personal philosophy and company mission embrace the commitment to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Born in Calgary, Alberta, BK credits his parents for instilling valuable personal and business development skills. BK leveraged his 20+ years’ experience in the wellness industry with his passion for creating unique ways to keep people healthy and founded Vemma, based in Scottsdale, AZ, in 2004. An industry leader, Vemma provides innovative products (Vemma liquid antioxidant, Verve energy drinks and the new Bod•ē liquid protein drink beverages among others) and a simple, generous compensation plan to help people live healthier and more rewarding lives.

Vemma is recognized as one of the top, international leaders in the health and wellness industry, thanks to its clinically studied, science-based Vemma formula and rewarding home-based business model. An advocate of “paying it forward,” BK devotes much of his personal and corporate resources in giving back to the community. In addition to his unwavering support for HealthCorps, Vemma helps to improve the lives of children around the world through philanthropic projects, including Vemma’s NEXT Helping Now Project, and The Dottie Boreyko Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in honor of his mother that supports the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®. He has donated over $4 million to such worthy causes as Church on the Street, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Habitat for Humanity.

BK and his wife, Courtney, are the proud parents of four sons and four dogs. BK also serves on the board of the Canyonville Christian Academy and the Leadership Board of the Cleveland Clinic’s Wellness Institute led by Chief Wellness Officer and HealthCorps Advisory Board Member Dr. Michael Roizen.
