Dear Prospective Sponsors,
Be part of a Georgetown tradition!
The 16th Annual Jameson 5K at Southwestern Run/Walk and Campus Mosey will be held on November 5, 2016, on the campus of Southwestern University. The 5K Run is a professionally organized event with a race route on both the San Gabriel Park hike and bike trail and paved streets. The Campus Mosey is a 1-mile stroll at a leisurely pace through the beautiful campus.
The Jameson 5K at Southwestern benefits the Jaysn Jameson Memorial Scholarship Fund at Southwestern University. Jaysn graduated from Southwestern in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. He died in a scuba diving accident in 1991, and soon after, family and friends established the Scholarship in his memory. Jaysn loved making people laugh and enjoyed life to the fullest. He was an avid runner, which is why the Fun Run is an excellent way to preserve his memory and raise money for his named scholarship. The Jaysn Jameson Memorial Scholarship was awarded to a student for the first time in 2000. The criteria to receive this scholarship are that the student must be a science major and demonstrate need for the financial assistance. Over the past 15 years, the Jameson 5K has been able to donate more than $108,232 to the scholarship fund, thanks in part to benevolent sponsors supporting the event. We reached our goal of $100,000 by the end of last year to celebrate 15 years of honoring Jaysn with the race, Southwestern University’s 175th Anniversary and the Class of 1990 25th Reunion.
In order for this event to be successful and for all the entry fees to be donated directly to the Scholarship, we need your help as a sponsor to help underwrite the cost of the race production. Southwestern University is dedicated to providing a quality education to students. By becoming a sponsor, you’re not only helping to provide scholarships for deserving students, you’re also allowing Jaysn’s memory to live on in perpetuity.
Together we have the power to build a local premiere race that will be the pride of our community for years to come. We hope you will become a part of this great event! Please review the attached sponsor packet for more details. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
