Trot Thru the Woods 2010 - We are looking for Sponsors

If you know anyone who would be interested, tell them to contact Laura Crites or myself. Here is the Letter we already sent out to local businesses around Warson Woods:

"Dear Sir/Madam,

The Warson Woods Running Club has begun plans for this year’s “Trot Thru the Woods” 5K run and “Run Around the Block” .5K for the younger runners and those who prefer a slower pace. The event is scheduled for November 27, 2010, the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The club seeks to promote community spirit and support the healthy lifestyle enjoyed in Warson Woods.

Last year’s event was overwhelmingly successful. It hosted 230 participants and 24 volunteers. Mustering community spirit with many local businesses’ support and sponsorship from the law firm of Behr, McCarter, and Potter, PC and Rohan Woods School, the run achieved its goal of encouraging youth exercise by including more than 50 young racers (under 12 years). In addition the “Trot Thru the Woods” was able to make a donation to “The Backstoppers”.

This year we hope to grow significantly! Our goal is to add at least 100 runners and double the number of youth participation. Demonstrating our commitment to young people, the running club has chosen to donate all profit to “Friends of Wings”. This organization provides pediatric hospice services in our community, see

The running club is looking for merchant support and sponsorship for the “Trot Thru the Woods”. Can your business provide support for run? We need food, water, coffee and sports drinks, as well as monetary contributions for the clock, medals for the children, race day goody bags and their contents, printing, and t-shirt advertisements. All contributions will be acknowledged in promotional information on the day of the run. Those who contribute at the $250 level will be designated an official race “Sponsor” and so acknowledged with their logos on the t-shirts and two 5K entries.

Please contact me via email or by phone if you can help in anyway. This is a great opportunity to support the Warson Woods community as it further seeks to distinguish itself.

Many thanks for your consideration,

Laura Crites, “Trot Thru the Woods” Committee"
