Makayla Joy Sitton Foundation

Sponsorship

Welcome Letter

The 2nd Annual Miles for Makayla 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, November 17, 2012 starting at the Abacoa Town Center Amphitheater in Jupiter, Florida. Last year's inaugural Miles for Makayla attracted close to 700 participants and extensive media coverage. We expect even more people will turn out this year to support this uplifting community event, which honors a very special child. Attached you will find Makayla's Story, a brief narrative for you to learn more about Makayla's life.

Committed to honoring the life and light of Makayla Joy Sitton, our Foundation's mission is to inspire families through the arts and education, giving children in need the chance to enjoy the same creative pursuits that Makayla so lovingly embraced. We achieve this by funding scholarships and other programs in our community dedicated to enriching the minds and spirits of our children, and equipping families for a strong tomorrow. The Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers to ensure the maximum benefit to our community.

Thanks to our volunteers, participants, and sponsors last year's event was an overwhelming success. As a result, our Foundation was able to provide more than 15 music, dance, and choral scholarships to deserving children in our community- all in memory of 6 year old Makayla Joy Sitton.

The Foundation would be thrilled to partner with your organization in order to bring this event to our community once again. Various advertising opportunities are available as set forth in the attached sponsorship packages. All sponsorships must be received by September 1, 2012 to guarantee your name and company logo in our race brochure.

Your involvement in the 2nd Annual Miles for Makayla 5K Run/Walk promises to have an everlasting impact for your organization long after the last runner crosses the finish line! If you are interested in a sponsorship, please contact Shannon Favole at 561-309-0554 or shannon@makaylajoysittonfoundation.org.
