By James Taff, CEO of Premier Security
Last year, Premier Security hosted the first ever 5K for Missing Children benefiting The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). Last year’s event raised nearly $25,000 in donations, registrations and sponsorships. Over 400 of our clients, employees, friends and family members came out to run/walk the 5K distance and help raise awareness for this very important cause.
Given the incredible feedback and support we received last year, we decided to host the 5K for Missing Children for another year! Our goal this year is to double our attendance and funds raised. The best way we can meet this goal is to have each of you join us!
This year’s event is set to take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at 10 a.m. Rain or shine, we will be stepping off from DuSable Harbor in downtown Chicago and we’re bringing back all of the great kid’s activities that were such a big hit last year: face painting, balloon entertainer, bounce house and a Kid’s Dash.
I truly hope you will consider joining us in support of NCMEC this year. You can support our mission in many ways:
- Get Registered – Register yourself, your friends & family and walk (or run) with us on October 14!
- Become an Official Sponsor – Sign-on to be one of our official event sponsors!
- Spread the Word – Reach out to your friends, family, colleagues, vendors and partners to see if they would like to join you!
- Fundraise – Setup a Fundraising Team with your co-workers or team members!
- Donate – Provide a donation in-kind (feel free to include your logo)!
Anything you can commit is very much appreciated. Our Sponsorship Opportunity Packet is available for consideration. We also have some great communication tools for your tenants and colleagues such as posters, post card collateral, electronic ads for elevators and websites, as well as customized invitation letters. Is there any opportunity to post our 5K information at your location? If you’d be interested in any of these items, please let me know and I will have them delivered.
To learn more about this great event and to register, please go to www.5KforMissingChildren.com. Once you go to our site, you’ll be greeted by a video from John Walsh of America’s Most Wanted, who is a big supporter of our event!
