MAKE A DIFFERENCE | BE A SPONSOR 

Let's us know if you'd like your company to be named as one of our sponsors this year.  While there are loads of benefits for each sponsorship level, the most important benefit is helping a seriously ill child remain close to their family during a time when they need the love and support of their family the most! 
 
Why not encourage your company to start a team or how about your company challenging another company to see who can recruit the most team members.  Every effort helps a seriously ill child stay close to their family. 
 
Another way to make a difference is to support the Walkers and Runners by placing a branded item from your company in our event Swag Bags. It's a great way to increase your brand awareness while also giving back and inspiring others.  
 
Contact Cheryl in Development to discover how you can make a real and impactful difference: 915.542.1522 or cpatterson@rmhcelp.org.
