We are seeking corporate sponsors of the 2017 Cubby Chase 5K, 10K and Color Mile Fun Run.
The Jim Dooley Center for Early Learning, a service of Finger Lakes Health, in partnership with the Autism Center at Ontario ARC, is holding the Cubby Chase 5K, 10K and Color Mile Fun Run benefit races on July 29,2017. This will be the 9th annual event to raise funds for these two worthy children’s programs.
We expect 800-1,000 participants this year. We are proud that our event is distinguished for both attracting serious runners and also maintaining its focus on families. We introduced the first 10 Kilometer road race to the Finger Lakes and the first Color Mile Run, where youth starting as young as age 4 can compete and experience a day of healthy family fun, as adults model the joy of being active and fit.
As a sponsor, you will benefit from your organization’s visibility among hundreds of local families and participants. Sponsors are prominently featured on our website and included in pre-race and race day marketing. This is also a unique opportunity to engage your own employees in corporate health and wellness, while demonstrating your support for area children and families. Other ways to get involved in this event include sponsoring a company team in the race, volunteering to provide a water station on race day, or supporting your employees to sign up for our Get Ready to Run, Couch to Cubby Chase training program which starts June 6, 2017. Please see the attachment for suggested sponsorship levels, contact information and discounts for sponsoring organizations. If you find it convenient, we accept credit card sponsorship donations via our event website.
Most importantly, local children benefit well beyond the day’s events, as the funds raised support the programs at the Jim Dooley Early Learning Center and the work of the Autism Center at Ontario ARC. Jim Dooley Center for Early Learning is a nationally accredited, early childhood education program that assures young children get off to a good start, providing services to 160 local families. We are proud that in our 27 year history, thousands of children have had access to affordable, high-quality care. Also, with statistics now indicating that 1 in 68 children will be diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, it is vital to ensure that access to services like those offered by the Autism Center of Ontario ARC is available to local families.
