  • • improving health
  • • making friends
  • • peer motivation

Race Sponsorship recipients are selected through an essay process.  An individual can receive up to 2 sponsorships per calendar year with a limit of $50 each. Only those runners who are unable to pay the race entry fee without financial assistance are asked to apply.  Annie’s Locker’s Board of Directors will review the essays to determine sponsorship recipients.
