Annual 5K Superhero Dash in need of sponsors, booth vendors
Posted on 3/14/2019 10:50:00 AM.

 

(Seguin) -- The race is on for a few good sponsors and booth vendors needed for this year's 5K Superhero Dash benefiting the Guadalupe County Child Welfare Board and Guadalupe County Children's Advocacy Center.

In addition to registering runners, organizers of both organizations say they are working to finalize the list of sponsors and vendors wishing to participate in this year's event planned for Saturday, April 6 at Max Starcke Park.

 

Christy Williams, the executive director of the children's advocacy center, says the event itself generates funding for both groups which service abused and neglected children in Guadalupe County. She says the groups are needing a helping hand as they partner once again for a very good cause.

 

"This is one of the only ones that we partner with another non-profit on but it's definitely an important fundraiser for the center to bring awareness during the month of April which is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month and in order to show how maybe these non-profits have some similar names but how we do different things for the kids in this county. So the Child Welfare board supporters did two races before joining up with us on their third so this is their fourth and then we did one race with another organization and then joined up with them last year so this is our third," said Williams.

 

Williams says in addition to coming out and participating in the fun Superhero walk/run, business sponsors are encouraged to help give the fundraiser a much needed boost.

 

"We are definitely looking for sponsors and the sponsorship deadline is the same as the runner's deadline so the deadline for sponsorships to guarantee your name of your business or your name is on the back of the shirt is also March 22. There's different levels of sponsorship and all that information can be found on our Facebook page and also on the children's advocacy center website," said Williams.

 

Vendors are also being encouraged to set up shop at the 5K. Diane Anderson-Glover, of the child welfare board, says all products and services are welcome and ask that vendors secure their spots now.

 

"We have vendors. We still need more vendors. The vendor booths are $20. Each space is 10 x 10. The vendor set up will be at 7 a.m. Tables and chairs are not provided. The registration deadline for vendors, to save you a vendor spot, is March 29th. GRMC came out last year. Some insurance companies came out. This year, I've got a pet store that may be coming out," said Glover.  

 

The Guadalupe County Child Welfare Board is a a group of non-paid volunteers who are tasked with providing the tangible needs of children involved with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (Child Protective Services) while the Guadalupe County Children's Advocacy Center provides a warm, homelike environment for children – reducing their trauma during investigation of abuse/sexual abuse.

 

"They're helping out a great cause -- two great entities that work together to try to help the kids of our county and our community and all the money stays in our community so they can come out and set up a booth and promote their product and join us too and help us out," said Glover.

 

Those wishing to become sponsors of the event or who would like to be a vendor are asked to contact Pam Lynch at 830-515-3476  or Christy Williams at 830-303-4760.

 

Those wishing to participate in the 5K are also encouraged to register online at www.athleteguild.com or onsite during the day of the race.

Cost is $20 by March 22 or $30 on or after March 23. Early registration also secures participants with a t-shirt or cape for children.

 

Registration information can also be found on each of the group's respective Facebook pages.
