This year, SLIM will be collaborating with the Kenya Pediatric HIV Project (KPHP), a group at the School of Medicine that works with children affected by HIV/AIDS in Kenya.
Like SLIM, KPHP has held a road race for the past few years to raise money for their program. We will be combining resources and manpower to try to put on a more successful race this year.
AS FAR AS PUTTING TOGETHER THE RACE, THE MOST PRESSING CONCERN RIGHT NOW IS SPONSORSHIP. WE REALLY NEED TO START GETTING SPONSORS FOR THE RACE. THIS IS CRUCIAL. WE CANT START PROMOTING THE RACE UNTIL SPONSORSHIP HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF. THE DEADLINE IS FAST APPROACHING (DEC. 15)
The fundraising goal for each SLIM member is $250. Donations and pledges from family and friends, as well as contributions from sponsors, all count towards this fundraising goal.
If we all make an effort to contact and follow up with sponsors and talk to our friends and families, we can make this happen!
We will be sending out emails to check up on those who signed up to solicit sponsors. If you have any questions or concerns about sponsorship, feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WE REALLY APPRECIATE EVERYONE'S HELP IN PUTTING THIS EVENT TOGETHER. MANY, MANY, MANY THANKS!!
