Without the generosity of our community and dedicated volunteers, we could not have the Brookhaven Family Run. In 2016, we had over 100 volunteers and more than 400 dashers, runners and walkers. Every year, we are humbled by the kindness of our neighbors, friends and community as they donate their time to our cause.
Please join us in making the 10th annual Brookhaven Family Run the best yet! We are looking for dedicated, energetic adult and teen volunteers to assist in the following areas:
Help with signage, race packet preparation/pickup, registration, parking, water stations, kids’ activities, silent auction/raffle, set up/breakdown, etc. This is a great opportunity to get credit for school volunteer hours!
Can you think of family member or friend who owns a business and would like to gain some great local visibility while supporting a worthy cause? Numerous sponsorship opportunities are available. Sponsorship Information
Could you arrange for the donation of a vacation rental, tickets to a professional sporting event, electronic equipment or other desirable products, gift certificates to a restaurant , salon, etc? A letter will be provided for volunteers to present to potential sponsor/raffle prize donors. We had some incredible auction items last year, including New York Yankees tickets, vacations in Wild Dunes, Amelia Island and Washington, DC, photography packages and more. Can’t wait to see what this year’s auction will bring!
Do you know of corporate teams or groups that would like to participate, or would you be willing to post one of our race posters in your workplace or in your neighborhood? Help us get the word out!
Show your support for Jake and countless others fighting Duchenne by taking your participation a step further and setting up a personal fundraising page. Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy Run for Our Sons' website makes it simple to personalize and share your fundraising page with friends and family, making raising funds quick and easy. Prizes will be awarded to our top three fundraisers.
Donations are also appreciated. You will be asked if you would like to donate during the registration process if you are registering for the race, or you may simply donate here. Don't forget to find out if your employer offers a matching gift program.
Running + fun = HUNGRY! We want to ensure we have enough refreshments available for our participants to keep their energy up. Contact us today if you are interested in helping provide refreshments to our participants for either Friday night or during Saturday’s race.
