The Feaster Five Thanksgiving Day Road Race in Andover has been a Merrimack Valley tradition since 1987. At 10,000 participants, it is one of the largest races in Massachusetts and one of the largest Thanksgiving day races in New England. We are very fortunate to partner with the race organizers and other non-profits as a charitable partner. While we do not receive support through the race registration fee, we are able to use this opportunity to seek sponsors for the event as a way to raise important funds for our organization.
We invite you to consider supporting our YMCA as a sponsor of the Feaster Five. As you may know, this is a high visibility opportunity to show your support for our YMCA to the 10,000 participants and many spectators that morning. In addition, the Feaster Five shirts are a very familiar site throughout the Merrimack Valley and this is a great chance for your logo to be seen by many for years to come. In addition to the shirts, sponsorship can include signage at the race, table at the 3 day race expo and entry into the race (2). There are a number of opportunities to meet your needs and budget.
The funds raised through sponsorships directly support our efforts to make a significant impact in our community in the areas of Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. We are proud to strengthen our community by providing access to health and wellness, aquatics, youth sport, teen leadership, education programs, as well as many others that help our community learn, grow and thrive. These programs are offered to members of our community regardless of their ability to pay thanks to fundraising efforts like this.
