Dear Community Friends,

At NDCS we work with parents to provide quality education in a spiritually nurturing environment. We offer
Biblically based curriculum that teaches the relationship of Christ and His Word to every phase of human
life, making Him the center and Supreme Authority of our lives.

To continue our efforts, we need your support. On Saturday, November 9, 2019, we will be holding our 7th Annual “Read, Write, and Race” 5k run/walk and 4th Annual Chili & Soup Cook-off. Our goal with this event is not only to raise needed funds for our school, but also to raise an awareness within neighboring communities of the benefits of local Christian education.

 There are two ways you can help. First, you may become an Official Sponsor of the race.

Sponsors will be listed on tee-shirts which will be given to all registered racers (we are anticipating 250-300
runners). Sponsoring options are as follows:

$100 provides your business listed in 1” font + advertising on our race website
$200 provides your business listed in 1 1/2” font, advertising on our race website + 1 race t-shirt
$300 provides your business listed in 2” font , advertising on our race website + 2 race t-shirts

As a sponsor, you are also given the opportunity to provide business cards, brochures, flyers, promotional pens, etc. to be placed in “goody bags” which will be given to all runners. 

We are also in need of door prizes for our post-race social. Your business will be recognized verbally and in written form on sponsor posters during the event, and you will have the same option as a sponsor to provide promotional materials for the “goody bags.”

Would you consider how you may be able to help us? We appreciate any support you are able to provide.
