Sponsorship Packages

Down by the Bay 5k & Tot Trot needs your sponsorship. We are a family-friendly 5k fun run benefiting a local non-profit preschool (MVPNS.org). As prices in the Bay Area boom, many small non-profit organizations, including ours, have been displaced and disadvantaged. These past two years have presented additional challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic. In these difficult times, this fundraising event is even more crucial to the survival of our school. Please help us continue to provide excellent early childhood education while keeping tuition affordable for families from all economic backgrounds.

This year’s race will take place on April 3rd at Baylands Park, in Sunnyvale. Runners, walkers, stroller-pushers, and little ones are invited. The event registrants who register before March 1st will receive a t-shirt that includes the sponsors’ logo. All registrants will receive promotional merchandise or materials from our sponsors prior to the start of the race.

Take advantage of this promotional opportunity, while supporting preschool-aged children and parent education, by becoming our sponsor! Sponsorships can be purchased online at downbythebay5k.org or by mail using the form below.  If you have any questions or would like to discuss any alternative proposals (e.g., joint marketing & promotion), please email sponsor (at) downbythebay5k.org.
