Sponsorship Opportunities: 

On October 10, 2021 Awake the Lake will hold its 7th Annual PALMER LAKE .5K (Yes “Point” 5)! After last year’s unique “drive  by” experience, we are excited to be able to not only get back outside for a little exercise (very little), but also excited to “run” this  year’s race over the Palmer Lake Pedestrian Bridge, which prior PALMER LAKE .5K events helped to fund. This return to form  presents a great sponsorship and advertising opportunity! The “run for the rest of us” is a not-so-challenging entire ½ kilometer sprint (or lope, or walk, or crawl), where competitors are rewarded not only with the unique views of beautiful Palmer Lake,  Colorado in autumn, but also a donut in the middle, and a (coupon for a) beer/soda at the finish line. We have the following  sponsorship opportunities for you to consider:

In-Kind Sponsorship: Donations for soda/root beer, beer, donuts, prize swag, etc. are gladly accepted, and sponsorship status  can be provided for such in-kind sponsorship at one level less than a cash sponsorship of equivalent value (i.e. $250 of beverage  donations = Bronze Sponsor).  

Not only do you get all the benefits above for being a sponsor, plus community good will for your name, but you’ll sleep better at  night knowing that YOU helped fund the bridge connecting the Town of Palmer Lake to its name sake Lake and parks, and other  great projects to enhance Palmer Lake and the surrounding parklands!  

*Race T-Shirt logo sizing may be increased or decreased, proportionally to sponsorship level, as necessary for t-shirt  printing/layout, depending on the number of sponsors, in the discretion of the Awake the Lake .5K race committee.  

This event benefits the Palmer Lake Restoration Project (a/k/a Awake the Lake – Awake Palmer Lake), a 501(c)(3) charitable  organization, dedicated to improvement and maintenance of Palmer Lake itself, and the parks that surround it, while maintaining  the unique small-town character of Palmer Lake that we all know and love. 

This year we are focusing our fundraising on funds needed for completion of landscaping surrounding the newly constructed  pedestrian bridge, as well as raising matching funds for a 2nd “continuation grant” from Great Outdoors Colorado (“GOCO”) grant  for which we plan to apply in 2020 to continue work in Centennial Park, including improvements to ball fields. Join us in sponsoring  this fun and memorable local favorite, all for a great cause. More information available at our “race” registration page and at
