The Amazing Race for Charity last year proved to be a very successful event that was sponsored by Jefferson Matters: Main Street. The fun race raised over $1700 in the first year! Those funds were donated to the 2018 selected charity, BOOST.
After last year’s successful event, the committee this year has set a goal of $5000 to be given to this year’s recipient, the new Animal Shelter Building Fund.
The committee has set the date of this year’s race for Saturday, September 7. Race registration begins at 9:00 on the Bell Tower Plaza. The race will be held predominately in the downtown area and will end on the plaza with a celebration party. This committee has already begun meeting with others this winter in order to have a successful and smoothly run event in September. We are hopeful we will have 50 teams consisting of 2 runners on each team. This will bring a lot of people into our downtown either as racers, supporters, or as observers!
Businesses will again have the opportunity to support this great cause with three sponsorship levels that will offer different ways your business will be advertised throughout the race.
Platinum Sponsorship $500
Gold Sponsorship $250
Silver Sponsorship $100
We will be sending out more information in a separate email with details about each level as soon as those are determined. And as always, any cash or in kind donations amounts will be appreciated!
Right now, we are asking you to please put September 7, 2019 on your calendars. We do hope we can count on your support, sponsorship, and participation in this great event. If you would like to be on the central committee, please let the Main Street office know at 386-3585!
