Sponsorships

Sponsoring the Cheadle Lake Run is a great way for businesses and individuals to get public recognition and support the work of Build Lebanon trails.

The Cheadle Lake Fun Run is self-supporting, so when you sponsor the event, 100% of your contribution goes to plan, develop, maintain, and enhance Lebanon's public trail system, and your donation is tax-deductible.

This is a great opportunity to market your business and organization in a way that supports the growth and livability of our wonderful community.

About Build Lebanon Trails

The annual Cheadle Lake Fun Run/Walk and Kids Obstacle Dash is the flagship event of Build Lebanon Trails (BLT), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.

Since 2005, BLT has been building and maintaining multi-use public trails to improve our community. We rely on the enthusiastic support we get from individuals and organizations just like you.

Additional support opportunities

Here are some other ways you can make a valuable contribution, whether or not you join a sponsorship category.

Donate business swag for goodie bags

Each event participant receives a goodie bag filled with items from area businesses, such as promotional items or coupons  that highlight your business. You are welcome to donate 1-300 items for these bags.

Donate door prizes

At the award ceremony, your business will be announced and the door prize you provide will be given away.

Door prizes are as varied as the businesses providing them. Examples are free meals, gift baskets, haircuts, discount coupons, and gift cards.

Other cash donations

Don't want the public recognition that comes along with a sponsorship? Or you'd like to contribute less than a sponsorship level? We're just as grateful to receive personal and business donations directly to Build Lebanon Trails. Just like sponsorships, 100% of your donation goes to support Lebanon's trail system.
