2nd Annual 5k Run for Recovery needs your support!
Birch Tree Communities, Inc. is looking for Sponsors for its 2nd Annual 5k Run for Recovery and 1 Mile Walk for Wellness. Sponsoring the Birch 5K is not only a great way to support the community and Mental Health but it is also great advertisement for your company. All sponsors will be recognized at this event through announcements, posters, and on the back of each T-shirt worn by event participants.
Sponsors and Businesses are encouraged to present Wellness Booths during the day of the race. Currently we have Booths for awareness of Tobacco, Weight management with fat/sugar displays, Physical Health screening, Mental Health, and Substance Abuse. We are asking if you display a booth to become a Bronze sponsor which would meet the $250 level. This can be in monetary donation or equivalent such as door prize or goodie bag items.
