It is officially February, which means the Komen Columbus team has only three more months to prepare for the 2010 Race for the Cure! This time of the year always gets hectic around the office but it is also the most exciting for us. One of the most rewarding tasks to fulfill during this time is finalizing all of our sponsors for the big event. Corporate sponsorships are truly at the heart of what makes all of our efforts worthwhile. Without the helping hands and generous support of our sponsors, Central Ohio residents wouldn’t be able to partake in the immediate services that we are so lucky to offer them. Some services such as conferences and educational meetings as well as early detection and prevention programs. All of which could not be funded without the contributions from our sponsors.
The Komen Columbus Race for the Cure has proven to be our greatest resource for community projects and programs and the reward is truly two-fold. Out of all affiliate races, the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure has been ranked in the Top 10 races for the entire company for several years. We have been fortunate enough to increase participation by thousands every year with last year’s final head count being more than 45, 000 runners. Becoming a corporate sponsor gives your company the chance to not only advertise its name on more than 45,000 shirts but, also, to be a part of the greater good working to find a cure for breast cancer.
We see our sponsors as close, personal friends and this year could be your time to take part in this special relationship. Becoming a sponsor is as simple.
