Since 2007, East-West Printing of Davis has been providing a wardrobe staple for many who take part in the annual Run For It program. Multi-purpose Run For It shirts come in a variety of sizes and colors. Pick a year or pick a color, and become a walking bill board for the mountain, the event, the Leaf Peeper Festival and the growing list of race sponsors that give us all a very good reason to walk, run or roll for it. This year shirts will go sale starting April 1 when the 2013 Run For It campaign kicks off. The back of the shirts feature logos and a listing of race sponsors that support the program and nonprofits, civic organizations and charitable causes throughout the region.
The Foundation seeds the purse with $10,000 of unrestricted funds. Race sponsors contribute any amount over $100. Sponsor support has grown the purse from $14k in 2007 to more than $38k last year. This year’s campaign is off to a very strong start and is on target for continued growth.
Call 304-259-5008 before March 15 to pledge Race sponsor support for the 2013 race (donors are invoiced prior to September 1). In addition to the shirts, race sponsors are recognized throughout the campaign in print media, on finish line posters and in the Foundation’s Annual Report circulated to more than 40,000 homes. All contributions are tax deductible.
