So I have been super busy this past week working on all things related to the race. There have been meetings, a sponsorship letter written, some sponsors solicited and engaged and some not. There is still so much that needs to be done and the fund raising part is what I am focusing on right now. I am getting a little nervous because we have recieved several in-kind donations, which we desperatly need, but no actual money at this point. We need funds to cover the expenses related to the race itself, to make sure all things go off without a hitch, and of course funds to go towards Kate Cares. All proceeds from this race will be given directly to Kate Cares.
Things are starting to really come together and I can see the results of that which make me more than happy! So much more still needs to be done. If anyone reading this blog is interested or thinks that a company you work for might be interested in sponsoring our race, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Sponsors will receive recognition of their contribution with their names and logos on all websites, blogs, and T-shirts associtated with the race. Those sponsors who wish to contribute to the organization will receive a tax donation receipt.
