Dear Prospective Sponsor,

For the past several years, businesses like yours have given back to our community by becoming sponsors of the Charlotte Running Club. This will be the 6th Anniversary of our race as we celebrate this fabulous community event on Saturday, January 27th 2018.

This highly publicized signature event provides a meaningful investment for sponsorship participants. Over 600 participants, from professional runners to aspiring athlete’s and young children are expected for the 6th Annual Winter Classic 8K 2018. This year’s event will once again include an 8k & 4k Cross Country Race and serve as the USATF NC State Cross Country Championship. Proceeds from the event will assist in funding programs sponsored by the Charlotte Running Club to further promote health and fitness within the Charlotte community.

In addition, the majority of the proceeds from the 2018 event will be donated to a local non-profit organizations in Charlotte. For 2018 we have named the Bring it for Braylon Foundation as our beneficiary. Braylon’s story and his desire to help raise money for pediatric cancer embodies a unique passion to help others. It is a vision that the Charlotte Running Club shares to help build a strong and healthy community.

We invite you to take advantage of this exceptional advertising and promotional opportunity as a sponsor participant. Expose your business in media advertising, reaching over 20,000 recipients through direct collateral materials, T-shirts, banners, newsletters, vendor spaces and much more. We have provided details of all your sponsorship benefits in this packet and hope you join us for this worthwhile community event.
