Casa Grande Community Hospital Foundation Thank You Letter
Date: 3/7/2015
 
On behalf of the organizing committee for the second annual Casa Grande Half Marathon and 5K, thank you for your support of this event. Because of your time, assistance, and support we were able to exceed our expectations and goals for the event. Thanks to your help, over forty-five women in Casa Grande and Pinal County will be provided with free screening mammograms or other diagnostic services through Central Arizona Breast Center at Banner Casa Grande Medical Center. These are women without insurance or with limited financial resources who otherwise would not receive this lifesaving test. Over the last few weeks, we’ve received a lot of positive feedback about the event. I’d like to share some of the highlights with you. • We had 102 runners participate in the half marathon and 170 runners participate in the 5K. We were excited to have so many participants support this amazing cause. • Over 100 volunteers assisted on race day. This large number of volunteers is evidence of outstanding community support and belief in the cause and goals of the event. • Countless people commented that they will participate in the race again next year and that they appreciated the chance to support the local community. In addition, our follow-up survey to runners confirmed that over 90% of respondents would participate again! • One of our goals was to promote healthy living in our community. Numerous individuals reported that this was the first race they had ever run and a number of first timers from last year returned for a second time. We hope it will continue to be an annual event for them. Many people traveled from out of state to participate as well. • Noting that the proceeds of the race were designated for Central Arizona Breast Center, many runners came dressed in pink to show their support. And the most exciting news of all, with your help, we raised in excess of $6,000! Again, thank you for supporting our community. It is partners like you that make Casa Grande and Pinal County a great place to live. We have also attached our sponsor/supporter thank you flyer for your records and hope you will consider supporting next year’s race, which is scheduled for Saturday, February 6, 2016. Feel free to contact the Foundation for more information or to secure a sponsor spot for next year at 520-381-6541 or kaitee.doll-bell@bannerhealth.com. Sincerely, Karen Kerr-Osman Director of the Foundation
