THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING YVCS' FITNESS CHALLENGE 2017!
Our 2017 Fitness Challenge Week involves fitness challenges for the whole family. Students will be challenged to set goals in 5 fitness areas, train toward those goals throughout the month of October before they are tested to see if they reached their goals during the last week of October. After the students finish, on October 28th, 2017 - the parents of participants will be challenged to run a 5k in full costume with or without their children. After the 5k run, there will be a Funfest where participating families, friends and many others will gather to play games, listen to music, eat and interact with vendors at our beautiful school campus located at 4977 Concord Blvd.
Corporate sponsors are invited to invest in this event for a number of reasons:
First, supporting this event directly supports growing families in the east bay as they strive toward fitness goals. This is an important cause to support and YVCS is at the forefront of this campaign. Corporate sponsors get the opportunity to be associated with addressing this need in our community.
Secondly, last year we hosted our first 5k event and the response was great. More than a hundred families turned out to run, eat, play games and interact with vendors. The event included multi-generations of family members gathered in the same area enjoying time together. Corporate sponsors have the opportunity to get their name in front of this unique audience in a beautiful setting while supporting a great cause in our community.
Lastly, t-shirts, pictures from the event, signage and memories made at the event have lived on andbeen re-visited with excitement in the participants minds for the past year. Many of the families that participated last year are planning to attend again this year. We are expecting several hundred people in attendance this year because of the reputation this event has established. We also expect this to be an annual event whose appeal going forward will reach more families in our area of the Diablo Valley. Corporate sponsors have an opportunity to reach an ever expanding audience in their area as the influence of this event grows for years to come.
4 Ways to Sponsor This Event:
1- The biggest opportunity for visibility at this event is to offer a corporate matching donation to double any of the funds raised during this campaign. This event is a fundraiser during which more than 70 families will be contacting family members, friends and companies they know to gain sponsors as they take on this challenge. Hundreds of sponsors gave donations to student participants and 5k runners last year totaling approximately $15,000! Thanks to two corporate matching donations, the total money pledged doubled to over $30,000! Every donor was told about these matching donations throughout the campaign and the corporations that sponsored in this were promoted across numerous platforms for many weeks leading up to the event and following the event. Please consider offering a matching sponsorship for this event and contact YVCS with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
2 - The primary way to sponsor this event is to donate money toward the cause. This donation is 100% tax deductible and provides the sponsor with a number of ways to interact with the attendees of the event. See the different levels of sponsorship here:
3- Corporations can also sponsor the event by sending participants to run in the 5k in order to represent their company. There is a $50 entry fee to run in the 5k COSTUME RUN and your company could make a strong showing by sending a team to represent the company.
4- Sponsors can also contribute to the event by sending volunteers to assist with timing the runners, course safety, registration and many other areas to assist with the event. Again, this will be a way to get visibility at a unique event.
All the funds raised throughout this campaign go directly to Ygnacio Valley Christian School where the participating families received an abundance of support through our excellent academic training, outstanding music programs and a holistic educational approach which empowers the parents as primary educators of their children, rather than replacing them. YVCS truly is a unique community and a wonderful opportunity to support Christian families throughout this corner of the East Bay Area.
Thank you for sponsoring this event!
