Partnership Opportunities

Get Involved

Join this year’s Komen Quad Cities Race for the Cure® to save lives and end breast cancer forever.

There are plenty of ways to become involved in the 2007 Komen Quad Cities Race for the Cure®. More than 8,500 participants, spectators and sponsors made the 2006 Race one of the largest in the Quad Cities and helped raise over a quarter of a million dollars in the fight against breast cancer.

Race support comes in many forms. We encourage you to join the more than 250 area businesses who partnered with 2006 Komen Quad Cities Race for the Cure® in the fight to end breast cancer.

Benefits of Involvement

Based on your level of partnership, your company may:

  • Build employee morale and company pride
  • Tap into the number one health concern of women
  • Receive high visibility before the event on Race Day
  • Extend and reinforce current marketing programs through public relations opportunities
  • Target specific audiences – reach women who are decision-makers, voters, and consumers
  • Test-market and showcase products

If interested in partnering with the Susan G. Komen Quad Cities Race for the Cure®, please contact the Race Hotline at (563) 421-CURE (2873) or 1-877-921-CURE (2873).

Join the Fight

Here are some of the ways to support the Komen Quad Cities Race for the Cure®:

Corporate Partnership Packages • broad reach
Corporate Partnership packages, ranging from $500 to $80,000, allow participation in various aspects of the Race. As excitement and public awareness build, your company name can be associated with the Race during the months leading up to the event. Depending upon your level of sponsorship, your name or logo may be on T-shirts, Race posters, applications and pre-event advertising. On Race day, you will reach an audience of more than 8,500 people with your message, via on-site signage and product sampling.

Corporate Teams • company participation
Businesses form corporate teams, made up of employees, families and friends, pre-register together through a team captain, and present a united front against breast cancer on Race day. Team captains attend a special training in the spring and pick up all team members’ Race t-shirts and bibs at packet pick-up. Team captain kits will be available in April. Outstanding teams are recognized through our awards program. More than 2,000 people registered as part of a team in the 2006 Race.
Please note: All members must register at the same time. No exceptions!

In-Kind Sponsorship
Our goal is to underwrite Race expenses through both cash and in-kind contributions. In-kind donations of products or services will be categorized at half of the retail value for sponsorship level purposes. In doing so, we reduce race expenses, thereby increasing the dollars available for breast cancer research, education, screenings and treatment. Opportunities for in-kind sponsorship include both Pre-Race Day and/or Race Day activities. Please contact the Race Hotline at 563-421-2873 or 1-877-921-2873 for more details.
