Recruiting Sponsors for Georgia Southern’s ROTC Crawl, Walk, Run
Georgia Southern University’s Army ROTC will host its fourth annual “5K Crawl, Walk, Run” on April 20, 2013, to support Snacks for Soldiers, the Wounded Warrior Project, Yellow Ribbon campaign and more. The ROTC Eagle Battalion is inviting businesses to sign up as race sponsors to help them achieve their mission to help U.S. troops.
The one mile walk and 5K run have grown increasingly popular in the last four years. After hosting more than 500 people in last year’s “Crawl, Walk, Run,” organizers expect more than 700 participants in April and will also offer a 10K run for anyone wanting to tackle it. They believe the success is due to the continued support from generous sponsors.
“It is critical to have people support the run because it supports our soldiers at home and in Afghanistan,” said Major General Lesley C. Smith, a 1985 alumnus of Georgia Southern. “The soldiers believe what our nation stands for, and they’re proud to serve their nation. So, your support is greatly appreciated.”
Smith added the race sponsorships give companies the opportunity to be an advocate for our armed forces, reach potential customers and be involved in the Statesboro community.
There are six categories of sponsorships ranging from the $300 bronze level to the $3,000 title level.
