Description

STOMP The Monster North Carolina is proud to present our 3rd annual 5K race/walk and Fun Run to be held at the Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary, NC.  The 5K run/walk will take place on the scenic and beautiful cross country course located entirely within Wake Med Soccer Park. It’s a nationally known course that has played host to the ACC cross country championships. The start/finish line is right by the event staging and post-event area. The packed gravel course is wide and extremely well maintained.  Following the 5K, a free kid's fun run will be held on the flat grassy area appropriate for kids of all ages.  The race will be held rain or shine.  Award for the top three finishers for overall and age group winners.  

The race helps support the STOMP the Monster NC, a local 501c non-profit organization that started in Cary in October 2012.  Our mission is to provide financial support to local cancer patients when they need it most - during their fight with their disease.  STOMP helps pay for everything from rent, utilities, electric bills, and car payments to child care, transportation, and groceries to prescriptions and medical bills.  Since 2012, we have supported more than 1500 patients in 75 of North Carolina's 100 counties with grants totaling nearly $400,000.  Our vision is to continue expanding throughout North Carolina.  This event will raise money to provide further financial assistance to North Carolina patients battling cancer. 

In 2013, STOMP The Monster held the first 5K benefit.  Over 300 runners and walkers came out to support STOMP.  The benefit was a huge success due tot he participants and volunteers who helped make it an awesome race filled with fun for all ages.  Please come out again this year to help STOMP The MONSTER!

We cordially invite you to participate as a Sponsor of the 3rd STOMP The Monster NC 5K and Fun Run to help cancer patients throughout the Triangle area. This event will be held Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 9:00 am at the WakeMed Soccer Park Cross Country Course.  We anticipate more than 500 runners and their families will attend the event.

Stomp the Monster NC is a non-profit 501c3 organization which provides financial support to help combat increased financial difficulties from non-covered medical expenses and loss of income following a cancer diagnosis.

According to the North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics, cancer is now the leading cause of death in our State. It is expected that over 56,000 North Carolinians will receive a cancer diagnosis this year alone. Families with little or no financial reserves prior to diagnosis are often devastated by the additional burdens of daily copays, large deductibles, travel expenses and more. This causes tremendous additional stress, worry and guilt for patients already challenged physically and emotionally by cancer.

Stomp the Monster NC is committed to helping patients in need that are undergoing treatment for all types of cancers. Through the generosity of donors, sponsors, and supporters we are able to eliminate some of the barriers to treatment and alleviate impending financial pressures so patients can fully focus on fighting the disease and reaching recovery. Through our efforts we hope to provide them a fighting chance to STOMP the monster which has taken over their lives. Since our inception in 2012, STOMP has provided more than 1200 patients with $375,000 in financial assistance in 75% of NC 100 counties.

Enclosed you will find a sponsorship prospectus outlining various sponsorship opportunities and benefits.

Your sponsorship will help defray the costs of this event and will help us achieve our fundraising goal of $25,000. All profit from the event will go directly to patients and families in need. This is an excellent opportunity for you to showcase your business’s products and services, highlight your commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and honor those you know who have confronted the Monster and engaged in their own battle against cancer.

On behalf of all of the members of STOMP the Monster of North Carolina and the patients we serve, we thank you for your time and consideration and welcome your support. We hope you see the value in becoming involved and we look forward to having your participation.

Sincerely,

Susan Blumenthal, Board member STOMP the Monster NC
