Sponsorship opportunities 2017 Good Shepherd Catholic Church International Festival 5K & Fun Run.

Sponsorship Opportunities: Local businesses and parishioners, please support our upcoming Race & Run as part of this year’s 42nd annual International Festival, which takes place Labor Day Weekend. Our Church conducts its sixth annual 5K Race and 1 Mile Family Fun Run / Walk, a popular community event that encourages physical activity in a fun, faith-filled atmosphere, while exposing our participants and volunteers to area businesses. Find the course at www.novaracetiming.com/Race/GoodShepherd.

The 5K Race and 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk is Saturday, September 2, 2017, starting at 8 am.

Past sponsors have not only provided financial support to GS-CC’s Shepherd’s Gate Grant Program, but have taken this opportunity to showcase their products and services to the members of our Church. As a result of your support, the Race and Fun Run has contributed to the Grant Program, which has supported dozens of worthy causes locally, regionally, and even internationally, with over $35,000 per year in grant monies.

I hope we can count on your support for the Race & Run this year. Coupons or gift certificates are gladly accepted for our Race Bags that enable you to get your name out into the community! You are also welcome to set up your own table and display, advertise your products or services, and hand out promotional items and coupons during Race Day, from set-up at 7am until tear-down at 10am.

Please consider supporting this worthwhile event. Contact gscc.if.race@gmail.com by August 22nd to confirm your sponsorship in order for us to include your products at the race site, advertising materials in our race bags, or to arrange for an individual display during the Race Day event. Thank you and see you on Race Day!
