There has been some major news on the Platinum Sombrero 5K (register here) front this week. I am tirelessly trying to secure new sponsors for the event, with the hopes that every participant gets something besides a medal and the satisfaction of helping St. Jude from the race. This morning Sweaty Bands agreed to donate some products to be given away to race participants. Sorry fellas, this is just a give away for the ladies, but I’m working on other items as well. From what I gather from fellow runners, these hair bands are great for sweat management and stay in place very well. Check out their site for more info and like them on Facebook.
Thus far, I should be getting items from the Atlanta Braves, New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks, Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs, Minnesota Twins, Oakland A’s, and Cleveland Indians. I am still working on securing something from the other 22 MLB teams.
Also today, I created a Facebook page for the Platinum Sombrero 5K! I hope that this will increase awareness and attendance for the event. Head over the Facebook and like the page now, please. Also, there are still plenty of race slots open, so register today!
