If you have a business or organization in New Hampshire, please consider sponsoring this race and supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Central New Hampshire. Not only will you participate in a very noble cause, but your business will be given very visible marketing exposure to endurance athletes and greater Concord community members alike.
Beyond being a terrific race for hundreds of runners on a scenic course, it is also an important fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Central New Hampshire. Over the history of the race we have donated nearly $50,000 to support scholarships for afterschool enrichment activities. The Boys and Girls Clubs have six sites in the greater Concord area that serve over 600 students weekly, many of whom are on scholarship.
We are asking for your help in sponsoring this community event so we can leverage maximum support for this important organization.
