REMAX Affiliates Charity Run/Walk


I dislike asking for favors or help, but given this is for a great cause I feel obligated and proud to do so for this event.

My office in Carleton Place, RE/MAX Affiliates Realty, is putting together a charity fun run/walk.
All the funds raised will be going to our very own Interval House, a resource for abused women and children, offering shelter, counselling and assistance in becoming self-sufficient and established in the community.

The run/walk will be open to anyone; it will be held on Oct. 15th, 2016 with a check in time of 8AM at the RE/MAX Affiliates Realty office & a run start time of 9AM at the Beckwith Trail – McNeely entrance. The event will wrap up at approximately 10:30 AM. There will be a 1 KM event for children and a 5KM for adults. Registration is $35 for adults and $10 for kids. Online registration is available at the website.  Each participate will be given a medal and water bottle. There will be water and light refreshments on site. The run will be timed with prizes at the end. We are also hoping to have some fun activities to keep the kids busy.

I am reaching out to you for various means of help with this fundraiser and would welcome any support for such a great cause. Obviously participating in the run/walk and getting as many friends and family to come out is the main goal!!! For anyone interested in doing a bit extra or not wanting to participate in the event but still hoping to support the cause, we could use your help with the following:

1. Volunteer help the day of the event, at a water station, registration station, spotter etc….
2. Donate a product or service as a raffle item or to be used in the race, if complimentary.
3. We are looking for corporate sponsors. If you would like to be a corporate sponsor or know of one, please contact me for the sponsorship package.
4. Cash donations are always welcome.
5. Help spread word of the event, through Facebook, placing a poster in your office space etc…
6. We are open to any suggestions. If you feel your business has something to offer for the event that’s not listed feel free to contact me to discuss.

Businesses willing to donate funds or a service will be recognized on the RE/MAX Affiliates Charity Run website.

I hope to see you Oct. 15 in purple to support this great resource in our community.

Feel free to contact me for additional information.
