We are currently seeking sponsors for our primary fundraising event, Run-to-the-River, an 8K race on October 29, 2017. Runners will tackle three challenging hills, race through historic neighborhoods over cobblestone streets, and dash along the scenic banks of the James River. The event will also include a Pre-Race Spaghetti Dinner on Friday Sept 27th,, the Fun-Run Mile, and a Post-Race party at Stone Brewing with a Halloween theme! All proceeds from the race benefit the Neighborhood Resource Center.
We recognize our sponsors in a variety of ways, including on our website, on banners, at the Center, on promotional materials, and more, depending on the sponsorship level. Our race appeals to people from all walks of life, but our core running participants are in the 30-46 age bracket, are highly active sports enthusiasts, are technically savvy, and represent a financially healthy demographic.
To learn more about the NRC or the race, please visit our website: nrccafe.org or call us at 804-864-5797. We would also be happy to give you a tour of the center at your convenience.
We hope you will consider supporting the mission of the Neighborhood Resource Center to revitalize the Greater Fulton area by taking advantage of this unique sponsorship opportunity.
