The starting gun for the 4th annual Thinga-ma-Jogger 5k race will go off on Saturday morning, February 23rd, 2019.
Created as a fundraiser by the Manatee Elementary School PTO in support of Manatee students, teachers and the school’s capital fund, this race is the premier reading-themed road race in Florida and a cornerstone event of the schools annual Seuss Week created to celebrate Dr. Seuss, create awareness of Read Across America Day and generate love and friendship within the greater Viera/Rockledge community.
For you, this means there is a wide variety of sponsorship opportunities for you to feature your business and your brand widely throughout our community.
All proceeds – 100% – are devoted to supporting needed school improvements, materials, supplies and learning technologies for Manatee classrooms. Race participants are asked to donate a new or gently used book to benefit local, Brevard County elementary school libraries in need.
Historically, the Thinga-ma-Jogger race draws between 650 and 750 participants and fans, family and spectators. In an effort to lift those numbers and boose public engagement for the 2018 event, Running Zone in Melbourne has been brought in as a new race management company. For the 2018 event, we expect upwards of 1000 participants on a new race course.
Sponsorship of the race will provide you with a unique opportunity to showcase your business to a wide audience while supporting the teachers and students of Manatee Elementary School.
