Dear Friends:

We are very happy to present the sponsorship opportunities for the 14th annual East Greenwich Rotary/ALS 5K Race/Walk, to be held on April 19, 2014.   The Scott Carlson Memorial Road Race is very proud of the fact that  all proceeds directly benefit local Rhode Islanders who are struggling with ALS.   Last year we proudly donated $62,000 to the ALS chapter in Rhode Island!

Who would have thought 14 years ago we would be still growing and expanding our race!!  We are offering many different race sponsorship opportunities again this year.  We have a number of monetary levels of support, most of which automatically entitle you to be recognized on our T-Shirt and possibly in all print advertising for the race. 

Also this year as a sponsor you have the opportunity to display your merchandise or services at our race.  You must provide the display and due to State regulations no commerce can be transacted.  It is a wonderful opportunity for hundreds of racers, families and park visitors to see you and your company.

All of the proceeds from the race go to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Association, Rhode Island Chapter.  This local chapter intimately supports the victims, families and caregivers of ALS through their many avenues of medical, financial, family resource, and equipment donation outreach.

Please review this package of information.  Pay close attention to the newest article by the ALSRI executive director Nancy Feroldi who gives meaning to our passion to fight ALS.  We also have a page detailing the Sponsorship Opportunities and what you can expect to receive for your monetary donation.  You will see that the visibility afforded to you through race sponsorship will be known to a wide variety of people throughout Rhode Island and New England.

Finally, there is a Sponsorship Form that you can fill out and return as indicated.  We ask that you inform us by March 10th (or sooner please!) regarding your support this year.

Thank you in advance for your support of this year’s race!

Dr. Judith A. Pratt - race chairperson

Reasons To Consider Sponsoring “The Scott Carlson Memorial 5K Run/Walk”

For the past thirteen years, under the leadership of Dr. Judith Pratt, the Rotary Club of East Greenwich has brought together volunteers, sponsors and donors with a vision and purpose. Together they have created the “Scott Carlson Memorial 5K Fun Run” event that’s reputation, participation and success only continues to grow. They engage family, friends, neighbors and local businesses to establish what has now become a landmark charitable event. The East Greenwich Rotarians never lose sight of their ambitious goal of bringing the community together to raise ALS awareness and funds. Money raised by the Rotary through this remarkable community event supports the ALS Association-RI Chapter’s local patient programs, services and exclusively sponsored multidisciplinary medical care at the Louise Wilcox Clinic in Providence.

Honestly, I do not know where our local ALS Chapter would be today if it wasn’t for the dedicated efforts and financial support of the Rotary Club of East Greenwich! To date more than $450,000 in proceeds have been raised and donated to the RI Chapter enabling us to offer such critically important ALS patient programs and services as consultations and home visits, support groups, equipment loans, respite care, handicapped transportation and education symposiums. These services greatly aid ALS families who struggle with the devastation brought on from this rapidly progressive and always fatal neurological disorder better know as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Thanks to Dr. Pratt and the other dedicated members of the Rotary Club of East Greenwich, volunteerism and community service are alive and well here in Rhode Island! In recognition of such outstanding volunteer leadership, the RI Chapter recently honored Dr. Pratt, local business leader, Rotarian, volunteer and advocate, with its most prestigious recognition-- “The Spirit of Lou Gehrig” Award. Judy’s outgoing personality and sincere and sympathetic nature enables her to truly lead by example. Through her boundless energy, extraordinary leadership and great enthusiasm, Judy has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of those less fortunate. She inspires others to get involved and take action to make a difference in our community!

Thank you to everyone who has sponsored the “Scott Carlson Memorial” 5K event in past! The Rhode Island Chapter is very grateful for your support! We certainly hope we can count on you again. And to those who have not yet become involved as a sponsor, we invite you to join this remarkable effort this year. I promise you it will not only be an enlightening and powerful experience. For it is only by working together that we will be able to serve our neighbors battling this horrific, unrelenting disease and provide new hope that a treatment will soon be found.

Very sincerely,
Nancy J. Feroldi
Executive Director
