RINGING IN HOPE™ traditions continue.
Runners, friends, and families from across the region--and even the country--come together to share in a day of friendly competition and loads of family fun. Our family-friendly, highly-anticipated annual events reach out to participants of all ages—toddlers to active seniors in their 80s!
Since our inaugural run in 2010, we have exceeded all our expectations. In the past eight years, RINGING IN HOPE™ races have attracted more than 20,000 runners, in addition to the countless spectators who cheer them on and the hundreds of volunteers who help make it all possible.
RINGING IN HOPE™ is most proud of the platform that we provide to local charities to help them raise awareness and fundraising support for the vital services they provide to local citizens in need. We are also immensely grateful to our many generous sponsors, the great majority of whom faithfully return to support us – each and every race. Their impact on the continued success of our events and their enduring impact on the health of our community cannot be underestimated. Recognition of our amazing sponsor contributions is reflected in every element of the RINGING IN HOPE™ marketing and promotional plan.
As an official event sponsor, your company will have the opportunity to be included in promotional materials, including:
Charity Promotion – Participating charities promote event through their respective networks and channels
Radio – Advertising and Community Spotlight
Newspaper – Local Community Newspaper Advertising, Press Releases, PSAs
Signage – Posters, postcards and flyers distributed throughout the community to business and local residents, 50-foot banner on Dulles Greenway (when available)
Sponsor Promotion – Sponsors promote event within their networks through e-mail, press releases, flyers, social media
Internet – More than 400,000 e-mail blasts to running groups, runners, banner ads, running group e-newsletters, event website, and social media
Combined advertising platforms for the event will reach more than 100,000 individuals in your community. Add that to the outreach efforts of our participating charities, and the reach is much greater.
