Dear Friends and Family,
I am writing to invite you to sponsor the second annual Race to Our Place 5K Run and Walk on Saturday, September 19, at Erickson Woods in Winnetka. As you may know, Our Place has been an important part of my life since its inception over 6 years ago. This event will increase awareness and raise funds for programs to support teens and adults with developmental disabilities in our community.
Our Place is based in Wilmette and supports teens and young adults with developmental disabilities so that they can live meaningful, productive, socially connected lives in their home community. We provide a full range of community based services, including vocational, recreational and enrichment programs, to over 90 young adults. We receive no state or federal funds.
We are looking forward to a great event and welcome your support. As an organization, we hope to raise $30,000 to support our programs. Be sure to hang around after the race to get your award. We will have give-a-ways, music, activities for kids, food vendors, and free beer for 21+!
Please consider signing up to be part of the race, or donate to my team. Every little bit helps us reach our goal!
