Sponsorship Opportunities:

Prize Sponsors $25-$100

We seek sponsors for the first and second-place teams in each category. Categories are; Mild, Moderate, and Vigorous. Each team is made up of 4 persons. Donations of items or services or gift cards would be much appreciated.

  • Your logo would be added to the Wellness Challenge page of the VCHWFoundation website as a prize sponsor. (you will need to provide your logo in high resolution/vector file for web)
  • Your company will be listed on literature given to all participants, identifying you as a sponsor.

Event Sponsors $100-$500

As registration fees are low to remove participation cost barriers, we seek Sponsor support and/or assist with events costs.

We seek Sponsors to support specific events, such as the “Dark to Light” walk organized by the Suicide Prevention Committee and Vulcan Regional Victims Service. Donation of monies to help with the purchase of wind-resistant candles. Sponsorship would also help with the purchase of  glow sticks for participants in the “Moonlight Glow Walk.”

Last year we added sidewalk chalk “Messages of Hope and Encouragement.” Assistance with providing chalk to all the towns and villages in the County is required.

  • Your logo will be added to the Participant T-Shirts
  • Your logo would be added to the Wellness Challenge page of the VCHWFoundation website as an Event Sponsor. (you will need to provide your logo in high resolution/vector file for web)
  • Your company will receive acknowledgement on the Wellness Challenge and the Foundation’s Social Media pages.
  • Your company will be listed on literature given to all participants, identifying you as a Sponsor.

Registration Sponsor $500 and up

We have a very ambitious goal for the 2021 event to find enough Sponsorship to cover our seniors’ registration costs. This would apply to any senior wishing to participate while living in long-term care or assisted living facilities in our community.

We additionally seek the Sponsorship of children attending school in the County of Vulcan.

Even though this registration fee is on the low end of the scale, it can still be a barrier for some residents in our community. And we, as a committee, are hoping this barrier can be removed.

As mentioned in the letter you received earlier, there are approx. 100 senior residents and there are 722 students. We do not anticipate all to register, but we would like to see as many as possible. We believe that removing the financial barrier will help.

  • Your logo will be added to the Participant T-Shirts
  • Your logo would be added to the Wellness Challenge page of the VCHW Foundation website as a Registration Sponsor. (you will need to provide your logo in high resolution/vector file for web)
  • Your company will receive acknowledgement on the Wellness Challenge and the Foundation’s Social Media pages.
  • Your company will be listed on literature given to all participants, identifying you as a Sponsor.
  • Your Sponsorship story will be added to the digital wall at the Vulcan Community Health Centre.

Thank you for taking the time to review our sponsorship opportunities. We look forward to your involvement in the Annual Vulcan County Wide Wellness Challenge.

Respectfully; Gail Wark
