BigFishTriathlon June 16th, 2018
We wish to appeal to local businesses to join us in efforts to provide a highly 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! All proceeds will benefit and help grow the important mission of the highly regarded YMCA youth camp Onyahsa, a gem in our community. ALL money stays in Chautauqua County. The race continues to be part of a fund raising campaign for the camp to initiate an overnight camping experience for Type 1 diabetic children.
New for 2018 is the change in venue to use the Mayville Village Lakeside Park as the race site. This option offers the race far wider spectator viewing access and is a compact, manageable environment that enhances our ability to attract a wider range of participants while bringing competitors and spectators into the village of Mayville. The choice of 6/16/18 provides us with a date that has no other regional races scheduled yet does not interfere with camp Onyahsa operations. In the past, use of the Camp site limited our ability to find race dates that were not vying for athletes confronted with multiple race choices.
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 SIXTH ANNUAL BIG FISH TRIATHLON to Chautauqua Lake, June 16, 2018! 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.
