Dear Community Supporter,
On May 16, 2017, the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA and the Scotch Plains Fanwood PTA Council will partner together to host a 5K and Family 1 Miler. Our goals are “United” to celebrate and provide opportunities for health and wellness within the Scotch Plains-Fanwood community. Proceeds from “United for a Cause” will benefit the “Livestrong at the Y” program and Scotch Plains-Fanwood PTA Council Health and Wellness Scholarship. Please click here to download a letter regarding sponsorship.
Livestrong at the Y is a twelve-week physical activity program free to members of our community recovering from cancer. The Livestrong program enables the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA to offer participant’s educational seminars, childcare assistance and services for financial management. The program focus helps recovering cancer survivors; “get their lives back” physically, mentally and spiritually. We want to give survivors the tools to continue their journey of health and wellness beyond the twelve-week program.
The “United for a Cause” 5K is a healthy community event that will “give” back to our local families and students. Many of our local students choose to pursue a career in the health and wellness field and this event will acknowledge a student(s) positive intentions by providing scholarship monies to put towards their college, school or training program costs. By providing financial support we hope to foster their desire to make our world a healthier place.
We ask you to support this event and our community with a donation or sponsorship to help defray the cost of the 5K and to support these two worthwhile causes. The event will be promoted at the Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA and through the Scotch Plains-Fanwood PTA Council.
To become a sponsor, please complete the enclosed form, including payment and camera-ready artwork of your name and/ or company logo.
The Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA and Scotch Plains-Fanwood PTA Council look forward to an exciting event that will give back to our community in services for LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, and to our students who are committed to making a difference in the Health & Wellness field.
