SPONSORSHIP I N F O R M AT I O N Dear Friend: On behalf of the charities, Gwinnett Community Clinic and Gwinnett Young Life, we would like to invite you to become a sponsor of “Run The Reagan.” The Run The Reagan event offers four races: ½ Marathon, 10K, 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run, a race for all levels of runners and walkers. This event is an excellent opportunity for two of Gwinnett County’s well established charitable organizations to receive the net proceeds as an annual fundraiser. Each of these organizations is doing great work in Gwinnett County and in order to continue that effort, they need ongoing funding and support from the public. Your sponsorship donation will go directly to either The Gwinnett Community Clinic or Young Life, both of which are 501-3C charities, or to one with instructions to be shared fifty/fifty with the other. 2013 will be the 18th running of this event. In 2012, we had 3,000 runners, with the support of over 250 volunteers. Again this year, we have the support of Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners, Gwinnett County Department of Transportation, and City of Snellville to close the Reagan Parkway on Saturday, February 16th. There is also a sponsor display and Family Festival area before and after the races with food and games for all to enjoy. Run The Reagan will be promoted in the Gwinnett County Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, Academy Sports in three ads with circulation over 200,000 each, and the Gwinnett Daily Post with over $40,000 worth of advertising for the race and its Sponsors. If you sign up now, your company name and logo will be included in all race promotional material as well as on all 20,000 race entry forms, over 300 posters placed throughout Gwinnett County and on our website at RunTheReagan.net. We request your financial support of these charities. Run The Reagan has grown in size so that the race pays for itself. Proceeds are then spit 50/50 by the two charities. The attached packet describes the five levels of sponsorship ranging from TITLE SPONSOR to Food and Family Festival Sponsor. Please complete the sponsorship form and mail as soon as possible to ensure your company will be recognized on all pre-race materials (see sponsorship form for details). Send your check made out to the 501-3C charity of your choice. In addition to your sponsorship, we encourage you to have fun on race day by making this a company outing! We ask for your support to help have a positive impact in Gwinnett County where you live and work. We will give your company all that’s outlined in the sponsorship packet and more! If you have questions, we would be pleased to provide any additional information requested. Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to seeing you in February! Sincerely, RUN THE REAGAN RACE COMMITTEE SPONSORSHIP I N F O R M AT I O N RUNNER’S THOUGHTS FROM LAST YEAR… “I had a great time running the Half Marathon in the “Run the Reagan” Road Race. I thought that having three different races and getting different skill levels involved is a great way to engage the community.” “Run the Reagan was well organized, nicely equipped and a great time had by all. Being able to run on a closed road is always such a treat!!!! The activities for the kids were wonderful, Our WHOLE family had a GREAT time. Thank you so much and I look forward to next year!” “I looked at four race opportunities Sat and chose yours. Great race- particularly the encouraging and helpful volunteers. First time I had run this one. I ran 72 road races last year- rank this one near the top. Great job-will see you next year. “ “Run the Reagan was well organized, great T-shirt, and having it in February gives a great reason to keep training during the winter.” For sponsorships questions please contact a committee member: Run the Reagan Race Committee Kimberly Maddox 770.855.4541 | email@example.com Tom Mayfield 404.444.3356 | firstname.lastname@example.org Parks Mann 770-846-8719 I email@example.com Website: www.runthereagan.net SPONSORSHIP I N F O R M AT I O N Run the Reagan Classic Sponsor Benefits Package Some of the benefits which can be realized by your company’s sponsorship of “Run the Reagan”.
