Event Sponsorship

Please note: Now more than ever, due to COVID-19, we need your financial support to bridge the gap from lost funds to continue serving RVA.

If you or your company would like to discuss sponsorship opportunities or ways you can support our remembrance walk/run this Fall, please contact our Development and Events Manager, Nikki Shaw at nikki@fullcirclegc.org.

Miles in Memory is a virtual walk/run to benefit Full Circle Grief Center. Racers will register to participate online (where they can also set up a personal or team fundraising page) and will use the race website to log their mileage. The virtual event will take place the weekend of October 3 & 4, 2020.

While we’d love to be together for an in-person event like we have for our RoundUp 5K in the past, this is a great way to connect with Full Circle supporters and engage with our mission at the same time during the pandemic. Miles in Memory will take place immediately following Remembrance Month, which we will celebrate in September in honor of Full Circle’s 12th anniversary. 

Racers will be encouraged to share who they’re running in memory of and create race teams to raise money for Full Circle if they so choose. Board, Staff, and Volunteers will be encouraged to send in pictures and/or short videos related to why they are running. Full Circle will create a short video in lieu of a kickoff ceremony that will go out to participants in the early morning of October 3. This video will include a thank you to participants, recognition of sponsors, information about Full Circle, and recognition of the lost loved ones participants are running in memory of.

Goodie bags with Full Circle and sponsor swag will be mailed to registrants the second week of October.

This event will be advertised on social media, via the Full Circle website, through mass email, and on community calendars. If and when applicable, Full Circle will pursue local news coverage for the event.
