The Aledo Children's AdvoCats has kicked off its sponsorship drive for the 9th Annual Run, Walk or Crawl for our Kids. This is the sole fundraising event for the organization and will be held March 22 on the grounds of the Aledo High School campus.
Sponsorships are available at Spirit ($250), Bronze ($1,000), Silver ($1,500), Gold ($2,500), and Platinum ($5,000) levels. Publicity depends on the level of sponsorship, but can include visibility in area newspapers, flyers, posters, brochures, banners, and links from the website. The different levels can also include complimentary race entries, race T-shirts, VIP parking passes and entrance into the VIP Sponsor area.
The race will include a kid's 1K run prior to the 5K. Following the race, “Treads, Treasures, & Treats” will be setting up to sell their merchandise. Food vendors will be providing free treats for the whole family. More than 700 registered runners and dozens of businesses and community organizations participated in last year’s race, and a great turnout is expected this year as well.
