Sponsor the Lincolnwood Turkey Trot

Sponsorship Packages

The Lincolnwood Turkey Trot needs your sponsorship. Since 1976, this 5K/10K race, 5K fitness walk, and kid’s fun run has been a Lincolnwood tradition, attracting 2,000 registered participants. Besides being a lot of fun for families of all ages, the Turkey Trot is a great way to kick off the holiday season.

Why Sponsor a Local Race? 59% of Americans are more likely to buy a product associated with a non-profit partnership. In addition to your sponsorship being a generous donation to benefit an event which in turn gives so much back to the community, there are also many business benefits of sponsorship, including the ability to:

  • Drive retail traffic or sales with coupon in our Virtual Goody Bag
  • Increase brand loyalty and differentiation
  • Build new and deeper community networks
  • Highlight community responsibility or social responsibility
  • Educate the public about products and services
  • Promote a product sample or provide demonstrations of product/service
  • Entertain clients or employees (Gold sponsorship and above provides 5 free race entries)

Please consider making a monetary or in-kind donation to help support the 41st running of the event. As a contributor, you’ll receive the benefits associated with the sponsorship package you choose. Please review the enclosed document that lists the sponsorship opportunities and deadlines. If you have other ideas for your involvement that aren’t listed, please let us know.
