We’d like to whole-heartedly thank participants of this past year’s Westchester Corporate Cup 5k Summer Race Series. Thanks to you, our sponsors and race participants, we raised $5,000 for the Continuum of Care, an affiliation of Westchester community services organizations.
The money raised will be used to fund housing and emergency food services for Westchester’s homeless and needy, with a high percentage of the funds raised going directly to those in need. Karl Bertrand, the Continuum’s director, asked us to direct these funds to Hope Community Services of New Rochelle, one of the Continuum’s largest participating organizations.
On December 10, 2015, we had the opportunity to present the $5,000 check to representatives of Hope Community Services and the Westchester Continuum of Care.
We funded the race series through a combination of sponsor contributions and race registration fees.
We’re planning to run the race series again in the summer of 2016, with the continual goals of boosting race participation and increasing our charitable contribution. To do so, we will need your continuing support and sponsorship from the business community.
Race series details will be posted online at our website in the next couple of months at www.corporatecupraces.org. If you know of any organizations interested in sponsoring the events, please have them contact us.
