Become a Sponsor
Dear Potential Sponsor,
The Fifth Annual Flintstone Challenge 5K Run/Walk will be taking place on Sunday, April 30 , 2017 at 9:00 am in Flint. As you know, this event was established in 2012 by 4th-year medical students of Michigan State University College of Human Medicine Flint Campus. All proceeds from the race are donated to the Flint Classroom Support Fund. This fund was started by the Flint Community Schools to allow educators the opportunity to apply for the Great Ideas Grant, which in the past has funded innovative and creative ideas linking learning across multiple fields of study, creating new curricula, and finding novel ways to engage the youth of Flint in education. Over the past four years, The Flintstone Challenge was able to donate over $47,000 to the Flint Classroom Support Fund. Our goal this year is to beat the previous year’s donation amount! In order to meet this goal, we are asking for sponsorships from local businesses and individuals such as yourself.
By giving to this charitable event you will not only be supporting The Flintstone Challenge race itself, but above all you will be supporting the real foundation of this city: Flint’s youth, the future leaders of this community. As students ourselves, we value the power of education and we believe that it is up to the creativity, education, and motivation of our youth to bring Flint back to the vibrant city it once was. Becoming a sponsor of The Flintstone Challenge will be your first step in providing Flint’s youth an opportunity to succeed.
We hope that we can count on you again this year to help support the future of our Flint Community and the education of our children. Attached you will find our Race Sponsorship Packet. This packet includes all the key details on sponsorship levels for the 2016 event. We ask that you please take time to review it and pledge your support to this great cause. If you have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you in advance for your consideration, we look forward to working with you!
