Become a Financial Partner

Each year, we have a number of ways to get involved in our non-profit. A key role to play is to become a financial partner or a race sponsor. Your partnership will benefit this cause in 2 ways.

  1. Donating to the Out of the Ashes Grant fund. When a family goes through a miscarriage, stillbirth, infertility issues, or infant loss, there are often the same medical expenses, deductibles and copays as those associated with a live birth. We know first hand how distressing it can be to get home after losing a child and have a medical bill show up in the mail. We want to alleviate the financial burden from grieving parents so they can focus on navigating a new normal with their families. Your financial donation, which will be fully tax-deductible, will go towards growing our fund, which will help provide for families who had to say good-bye to a child.
  2. Offsetting the race expenses as a corporate sponsor. Each year, our hope is to be able to host a special evening for our race participants. In the past, this has included the race itself, snacks, water, alcoholic beverages, gifts, awards for our top runners, and activities throughout the evening. Your sponsorship will help offset the expenses to make this event a success. See below for the different levels of sponsorship.
