In 2014, we’re holding the 3rd Annual Beat the Bug 5K Run/2K Walk and we are asking for your help. The 2014 Beat the Bug 5K Run/Walk will take place Sunday, April 27, 2014. The run/walk will take place on the streets of West Chester and we have received the event permit and the commitment of many volunteers for the event.
Financially, our goal is to have enough donated funds to cover the expenses of the race so that all registration money can be sent directly to Imagine No Malaria.
Would you consider making a donation toward this effort?
We have designated three levels of sponsorship:
- Gold for a gift of $500,
- Silver for a gift of $250, and
- Bronze for a gift of $100.
We appreciate gifts of all sizes. All gifts will be tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Please email BeatTheBugRace@gmail.com if you are interested. Thank you.
Thanks to our 2013 Sponsors
Thanks to all of our sponsors who helped make the 2013 Beat the Bug 5K Run/2K Walk a success. The 2013 run/walk raised more than $8,000, and all the proceeds from the race registration went directly to the Imagine No Malaria campaign.
