An announcment from Nicole Weckherlin and Suzanne Gabris, MOHF 5K Co-Chairs on behalf of MOHF:
This fall, the foundation will be sponsoring a very special and important event. On Saturday, Oct. 6, there will be a 5K race held in Wildwood, MO. We are pulling our team together to create a fun, family event and to honor Oakes, as well as the many others who have been impacted by congenital heart defects. The Ortyl family was gracious enough to share the huge lessons they learned from Oakes: we are all connected, and taking care of each other is what life is all about.
We are asking you to consider getting involved with this event by making a monetary donation to the MOHF. The team of organizers hopes to bring out loads of people for a day of stretching, deepbreaths, and heart pumping exercise. Promoting heart and lung health is a natural fit for MOHF, and our hope is to raise a substantial amount of money that will better enable the MOHF to spread its vision and purpose and carry out its mission.
As an established 501(c)(3) organization, your donation is 100% tax deductible. Any amount you are to give will graciously be accepted, but the following perks will be given to those sponsoring at the corporate level:
- Company logo on our corporate sponsor banner at the finish line: $100.
- Company logo on the banner plus 5 entries to the event: $250.
- Company logo on the banner, 5 entries to the event, and your logo on the back of race shirts: $500.
(This level is limited to 20 sponsors, and for ordering purposes, it must be secured by September 14th.)
- Company logo on the banner, 5 entries to the event, and your logo on the either the right or left
sleeve of race shirts: $1,000. (This level is limited to 2 sponsors and must be secured by September 14th).
We are also in search of other types of donations, such as snacks, fruit and bottled water.
Please review this link to register and for the race day specifics. The Mighty Oakes Heart Foundation and the Ortyl family sincerely appreciate your consideration in supporting their charitable organization.
