BIG FISH TRIATHLON JUNE 10, 2017
We wish to appeal to local business to join us in efforts to provide a very visible and meaningful community service. We request consideration of your financial support and sponsorship for this year’s event! We hope for approximately 200- 300 participants, and to continue to grow! The event is to take place at YMCA Camp Onyahsa in Dewittville, NY, and all proceeds will benefit and help grow the important mission of this highly regarded youth camp and gem in our community. ALL money stays in Chautauqua County.
The race also has been part of a fund raising campaign for Camp Onyahsa to initiate an overnight camping experience for Type 1 diabetic children. 2017 will represent an expansion of this program to include 16 Diabetic campers for a 5 night stay at camp.
New for 2017 is the partnership amongst the key triathlons in the area, the Meadville Dam Tri and the Edinboro Triathlon. We are excited about this arrangement that better puts the Big Fish on the regional map, avoids event timing conflicts, and promotes the noble goal of the more determined athletes being given special recognition for finishing all three events.
Please consider Sponsorship of this Olympic Triathlon Event.
We strive to implement a well planned, organized, safe, and memorable experience. We are USA Triathlon Sanctioned, which provides further depth of safety, insurance, and name recognition of a quality event. Sponsors will have high visibility with identification on t-shirts, posters, and media publicity, as well as the opportunity to have banners and promotion on the day of the event. Please refer to attached sheet for more specific benefits of your donation.
Please join us, and get on board early as we generate excitement to bring the FIFTH ANNUAL BIG FISH TRIATHLON to Chautauqua Lake, June 10, 2017! We value our sponsors, it is what makes an event successful in providing the foundation to bring together business and community, and deliver a quality event that promotes a healthy lifestyle. We hope to be in contact with you soon, or contact us at your convenience.
