The Cherokee Runners Organization (CRO) is extending sponsorship opportunities to both businesses and individuals for its first July 4th Annual Cherokee Runners Moonlight Race 5K Run/Walk. There are several levels of sponsorship ranging from a “Title Sponsorship” ($500 donation) to “Friends of the Cherokee Runners Classic” ($25). Each level includes event day recognition and at least one complimentary race entry. For sponsorship inquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website, www.cherokeerunners.com.
CRO started in March 2010 as an informal group of runners with a range of skills. The club welcomes runners, friends of runners, visitors, and walkers of all levels and recently acquired a 501(c)(3) status under the Road Runners Club of America. That means all contributions to CRO are tax deductible. CRO is dedicated to promoting the sport of distance running through education and training and as a part of a healthy lifestyle.
The race will be followed by the Tribe’s 4th of July celebration and fireworks. The 5K is a proposed certified USAFT course along scenic, well-lit streets through downtown toward the Casino with one water stop at the halfway mark/turn around. This race will help fund the Cherokee Runners Summer Running Camp and 20% of entry fees will be donated to the Cherokee Special Olympics.
