Corporate Sponsorships and Individual Contributions are always welcome!
Last year, Syracuse hosted our first Central New York (CNY) Gay 5k. The race was a huge success with over 250 registered runners, and 25 volunteers. With the money from registrations, corporate sponsorship and individual donations, we proudly donated $3,000 to local LGBT non-profits. We are pleased to add a family-friendly health-focused event to an already successful Pride Week. This year, we are hoping to raise over $5,000 for these organizations.
The event will be held at Long Branch Park on Saturday, June 17th. Advertisements proudly featuring our sponsors (you!) will be spread across CNY, and we would love to have your support in growing this event. More information about sponsorship, our non-profits, volunteering and registration can be found on our website www.CNYGay5k.com.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be used to support the LGBT community here in CNY. The proceeds will be split 50-50 between SAGE Upstate and CNY Pride. SAGE Upstate promotes the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Central New York as they age. CNY Pride provides a forum to celebrate and affirm individual sexual and gender identity through a number of events throughout the year including an annual Pride Parade and Festival. These groups will use funds raised for continued community support through health presentations, fitness classes, support networks and social events.
If you are unable to sponsor this year, please still consider participating by signing up for the race – or putting together a team of volunteers from your company – or just coming by to cheer!
