Our final nod to sponsors (and you!)
Well, it’s the day before the race! And we are so excited we can’t stand it! But we have a few more organizations to thank because, without them, there would be no RunJenRun 5K!
First of all, we’d like to thank the Checkers organization. They have been unbelievably supportive, financially and otherwise. If you missed Pink in the Rink on February 7, then you missed the presentation of a $25,000 check to the Go Jen Go Foundation and a commitment of $5,000 per year for the next TEN years! We can’t thank them enough! Here’s what they have to say: “The Charlotte Checkers are extraordinarily proud to be a sponsor of RunJenRun. Jen embodied the spirit of “hockey tough” and we will be eternally grateful to have had Jen motivate each and every one of us. We are proud to be here today in her honor and look forward to supporting all Go Jen Go events in the future.”
Two other sponsors to which we owe a debt of gratitude are Lending Tree and Y2 Yoga. You all know Lending Tree — an organization based in Charlotte that offers mortgages and loans as well as refinancing, debt consolidation, consultation services, and more. And sessions with Y2 Yoga, (whose slogan is “Life is complicated. Yoga is simple.”) will help you de-stress and relax after even the most challenging day. Our sincere thanks to both organizations for supporting the RunJenRun 5K.
Well, we’re down to the final countdown! We have so many people to thank that we don’t even know where to begin! Of course, we appreciate our wonderful sponsors, but we are also indebted to the many volunteers who will be helping out tomorrow as well as the vendors, food trucks, and Novant (for the mammograms). And we can’t forget YOU, our awesome registered runners and walkers. YOU will help us build this legacy by coming out year after year to raise money to help victims of breast cancer. YOU will walk and run for Jen because her mission is life-changing and profound. YOU will help us help others. And for that, we are deeply and unabashedly grateful.
