Dear Prospective Sponsor,

The Mansfield United Lions Club is sponsoring a 5k Run/Walk and 1 Mile Walk in Mansfield on Saturday, April 25, 2020, called “Strides for Diabetes.” This event is part of our goal for community education and outreach, with several facets. We would like to encourage people with diabetes to get active and work toward successfully completing a 1 mile walk or 5k run/walk, and in doing so improve their physical fitness. This event will also allow family members and friends of people with diabetes to participate and show their support. We hope also to raise awareness of the prevalence of diabetes in our community, and highlight some of the resources available to improve the lives of people with diabetes.

We are requesting your support for our community by becoming a sponsor of the “Strides for Diabetes.” If you are able to donate a minimum of $100, your sponsorship will be recognized with your company or organization’s name printed on the back of the race t-shirt, and your company or organization can have a table space to display product information and provide items to participants. Promotional information could also be provided to race organizers that can be included in participants’ registration bags.

The race will begin at 9:00 a.m. on April 25, 2020, at Malabar Middle School. The cafeteria area will be open before and after the race for sponsor display tables.

Please see and complete the link on the home page by April 1, 2020, for guaranteed inclusion as a sponsor of the Inaugural “Strides for Diabetes” 5k Run/Walk or 1 Mile Walk sponsored by the Mansfield United Lions Club. For additional information, contact the club at or call 419-528-8131.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration,

Mansfield United Lions Club
