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. This year has presented additional unique 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.

For the safety of our community, this year’s race will take place virtually between October 23 and November 1. Participants will run in their own communities at the time of their choosing, and we anticipate participation from all over the country. Participants may have the option of submitting official race times. As in past years, participants will be encouraged to wear costumes; as an added bonus, they’ll be able to upload their pictures to share with the community and potentially win costume prizes! All registrants this year will receive a t-shirt to be mailed upon completion of the race, and promotional materials from our sponsors–as well as race and contest prizes!–can be included in the mailings.

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.
