Become a Sponsor

We cordially invite you to participate as a sponsor of the 5th annual “Michael’s Run for Life Festival.” This event raises money to fund research for Signet Ring Colon Cancer. The event will be held on Saturday, July 21, 2018 in Germantown Hills. There will be a kid’s race starting at 5:30 PM and an event area that will begin at 5:00 PM that consists of balloon art, face painting, and inflatable. The 5k run/1 mile walk will start at 6:00 PM followed by a concert featuring Brushville at 7:30 PM. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

This event was created by Michael and his wife, Angie. Michael was initially diagnosed with stage 3 Colon Cancer in February 2010. He went through six months of chemotherapy with his wife and infant son by his side. Michael had been in remission for almost four years when in December 2013, he was diagnosed with stage 4 Colon Cancer. He underwent additional chemotherapy and extensive surgery to remove the cancer in April of 2014. Michael once again went into remission for almost two years when he had another recurrence. Michael had another extensive surgery in April of 2016 to remove more cancer and is currently receiving indefinite chemotherapy. Michael has Signet Ring Cell Adenocarcinoma, a rare and aggressive type of cancer that affects less than 1% of all Colon Cancer patients. Because of its rarity, this type of cancer is not researched as much as the more common forms of Colon Cancer.

Your sponsorship will assist in offsetting the costs associated with this event. All proceeds from the event will go towards funding Signet Ring Colon Cancer research.

There are various levels of sponsorship for “Michael’s Run for Life Festival.” Size and placement of logos on t-shirts and website are based on sponsorship level. Each year we relinquish 600-900 shirts. Over 1,500 people attend the event each year fostering extensive exposure for our sponsors.
