Cherokee Runners Organization seek sponsorships for race

The Cherokee Runners Organization is seeking sponsors for its first Cherokee Runners Moonlight Race 5K Run/Walk, which will take place on Monday, July 4.

The event will coincide with the tribe’s Fourth of July celebration and fireworks. The race will help fund the Cherokee Runners Summer Running Camp, and 20 percent of entry fees will be donated to the Cherokee Special Olympics.

There are several levels of sponsorship, ranging from “Friends of the Cherokee Runners Classic” ($25 donation) to a “Title Sponsorship” ($500 donation). Each level includes event day recognition and at least one complimentary race entry.

The Cherokee Runners Organization started in March of 2010 as an informal group of runners ranging from amateur to elite. After forming friendships and becoming a support for one another they decided to form a club. They welcome runners, friends of runners, visitors, beginning runners and walkers of all levels.
