Sponsorship Information

Sponsor Bolt for the Blue 2017 and Gain Exposure for Your Business!

More than 300 participants are expected to attend this year’s BOLT. With the help of sponsors like you, in the past BOLT has raised more than $8,000/year to support important PTA initiatives, such as new technology at Ligon. With the goal of creating a healthy community through exercise and nourishing food, this year’s event will not only help families work up a sweat together it will also raise funds to support Ligon’s Back Pack Buddies Program (a partnership with the Interfaith Food Shuttle), providing much needed weekend food support to food-insecure Ligon students. The PTA will use the proceeds from this year’s race to support NEXT YEAR’S BackPack Buddies Program, allowing us to expand our support to additional students!

We are grateful for the many area businesses, organizations and families that sponsor this race. We could not succeed without the generous support of our families and business community! Sponsors’ names and logos are highly visible on race t-shirts, brochures and banners — students enjoy wearing the shirts on the day of the event, on field trips and around town. Having your logo on the shirt is sure to bring brand awareness and is a smart way you can advertise your business and support the school at the same time. It is a win-win situation!

We hope you will consider sponsoring the 2017 Bolt for the Blue! All donations are fully tax-deductible.
