It's Not Too Late to Help Sponsor Battle of the 'Burgs!

May 03, 2016 03:59PM ● By Erica Shames

In 2013, after the passing of Lewisburg chiropractor Mike Baker, as a result of inoperable brain cancer, Erica Shames started the Michael P. Baker Community Impact Fund. The goal is to honor Mike’s generous spirit and raise funds to help other families coping with catastrophic illness or circumstance.

The fund is overseen by the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania ; this year, with help from Fit for Funds and Tara Michaels the Second Annual Battle of the ‘Burgs event will take place to try to meet the annual fundraising goal of $5000.

The event, which takes place on June 3, consists of a 3-mile race on the Buffalo ValleyRail Trail; participants choose to start at either the Lewisburg or Mifflinburg side and meet in the middle.

The post-race party takes place at Ard’s Farm, where an all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet, music by Folk Justice Band and beer tastings from Rusty Rail Brewing Company all contribute to the fun.

Already, Dr. David Reiner, DC, of Watsontown, is helping us sponsor this event! Thank-you, Dr. Reiner!

You can help sponsor the event at one of two levels:

Marathon Level Sponsorship (3 sponsorships available): Financial sponsorship of $500.  Your logo goes on the back of race tee-shirts; your logo and link to your Web site will be on AFitEvent.com for 1 year; your business name will appear in every 2016 Battle of the ‘Burgs Facebook post, email and press release that is disseminated to the media; you can appear at the event to greet runners and hand out a give-away item of your choosing (that you provide): magnets, pens, energy bars, etc.
