The Lighthouse Loop provides a unique opportunity for your business to help the local community while marketing your name and creating positive public relations. This is a spirited, community event along the beautiful coast of Volusia County benefitting our area high school athletes. The race is organized by the West Volusia Runners and the Volusia Coastal Runners, local running clubs with over 400 members who are dedicated to putting on a race that exceeds runners’ expectations.
To date, the event has raised nearly $100,000, all of which went directly into the athletic departments of each of Volusia County’s ten public high schools thanks to supporting companies such as yours. We received approval from the Volusia County’s Athletic Board to proceed with this year’s annual half marathon and 5k foot race on their behalf. This half marathon race will offer participants a challenging course starting from the Dunlawton Bridge and continuing along southbound A1A, looping the historical Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, then returning on picturesque Peninsula Drive and over the bridge to end at Aunt Catfish’s on the River for a total of 13.1 miles.
This comes at a time when many of our young athletes are unable to play sports due to the lack of support, financially and emotionally. This event will help with the financial and emotional challenges they face. Financially, each school receives an equal portion of the donation from the race. Our goal is to raise at least $2,000 for each school, or $20,000. Emotionally, the kids and staff will be proud to represent their school and will discover a great sense of self-worth volunteering for their community as they battle it out to see which school has the best water stop along the course!
We have no doubt that with your help we will once again meet our goal of $20,000, but we cannot do it alone. Please consider being a sponsor for this event.
