Bradenton, FL — The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM) will host its annual 5k race and 1-mile walk at 8 a.m. Saturday, March 11, 2017, at the Sport Complex on the campus of Lakewood Ranch High School.
Students at LECOM’s Bradenton campus are raising funds for the Student Scholarship Fund, which assists them with the costs of their medical educations. LECOM, a 501©(3) organization, and its students have contributed to the giving spirit of Southwest Florida through student and faculty participation in dental screenings, health-related clinics such as Turning Points and the Good Samaritan Pharmacy, and other volunteer events such as YMCA Healthy Kids Day, Give Kids a Smile, Relay for Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Operation Prom and numerous health and wellness fairs.
In anticipation of another successful staging, the event is moving this year to the Lakewood Ranch community for the first time and early sponsors include Carlton Arms Apartments, BurgerFi, Culver’s and Smoothie King.
If you would like to contribute, or if your company is interested in sponsoring the race or making an in-kind donation, please contact LECOM. Your contributions will permit LECOM to buy shirts for participants, prizes, timing services, first-aid equipment, tents and food for the participants.
As a sponsor, you’ll be able to promote your business to hundreds of students, faculty and community members via your signs at the start/finish line and at the water station and/or your logos on T-shirts.
LECOM also is accepting in-kind donations, such as food and drinks (i.e. sandwiches, snacks, fruit, bagels, granola bars, energy bars, Gatorade, water, energy drinks, etc.) or prizes (gift cards, vouchers, water bottles, clothing, running equipment, etc.).
And donations to the Student Scholarship Fund help LECOM students reach their goals. You will be supporting the future of the healthcare professions.
If your company is interested in contributing to this event at any level, please contact LECOM to discuss details.
