An invitation to support a unique event
Achilles Canada invites you to support a unique event to raise funds, promote community involvement, and have a little fun. On the heels of our successful 16th annual Achilles St. Patrick’s Day 5K Run/Walk, Achilles Canada is hosting our 17th annual event on the streets of downtown Toronto on March 13, 2016. Participants raise money for charities across the city by running or walking 5K through the downtown core.
Registration fees go toward providing much needed support to athletes with various disabilities so that they have the opportunity to enjoy the physical, psychological, and communal benefits of running. Visit the Achilles web site to learn more about how we support these deserving athletes.
Sponsors receive recognition leading up to and throughout the event. By partnering with Achilles, sponsors reinforce their brand image with the loyal sports-minded public, increase image awareness and name visibility for services and products, and generate goodwill throughout Toronto and the running community. Discover the many benefits of sponsoring this event.
Become a part of a successful event and join us as a supporter of the annual Achilles St Patrick's Day 5K Run/Walk.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
