Sponsorship Information
for the 3rd annual

McKaig 5k Trail Race

& Monkey Rock Miler

Sunday, September 30th, 2018, 9am

 

After a very successful 2nd year event, McKaig Nature Education Center, a local oasis known for its well‐maintained trails, unspoiled woods and pristine creeks, is excited to be hosting its 3rd annual 5k trail race! This race keeps getting bigger and bigger, and we couldn’t be more excited! The mission of this beautiful park and longtime home to hikers, dog walkers, families and runners, is to provide an education in environmental and nature studies to students and organizations- an education that can not be taught in classrooms or on screens.

 

With a beautiful backdrop and post‐race festival featuring food and entertainment, this will be a great way to showcase your organization to McKaig’s many local supporting members, as well as an anticipated 125-150 racers and their cheering sections. The success of this event depends, in part, on the generous investments from our sponsors. Not only is this a great advertising opportunity for you, but your donations will help support student environmental educational programs, as well as maintenance projects that will ensure the long-term sustainability of this park for generations to come.

 

Demographics: The McKaig community spans over 2,200 people (more with family members) who regularly visit the trails and follow our events on social media and our website. Of these, 40% are in the 35-44 age group, 24% in the 45-54 bracket, 17% in ages 25-34, 16% are 55+.  94% live within 12 miles and 92% maintain household incomes over the national average.

 

The deadline for sponsorships is 9/2/18, so now is the time to get your organization significant exposure and goodwill! Please help your organization and ours by supporting this great local cause with financial contributions or in‐kind donations.

 

All the best,

 

Karl Woodeshick, Race Director & Board Member

Thank you sponsors!

Race proceeds benefit student environmental education programs, park maintenance and operations.



On behalf of the McKaig community and Board of Directors, thank you for your contributions to insure our environmental educational programs continue to provide for area students. Furthermore, your funds are used to make the McKaig trails an enjoyable place to visit.

Sincerely,

Rob Puglisi, President
