Why Sponsor?

Since 2014, each year, more than 3,000 runners, walkers, volunteers and supporters Stepped Up for Colleen. Not only is your support of the race a unique opportunity to demonstrate your company’s commitment to the community, but also helps tomorrow’s teachers obtain the education they require to inspire their future students.

There are a number of costs associated with the Step Up for Colleen event. For every sponsor that joins Step Up for Colleen, additional funds benefit charitable activities honoring the legacy of Colleen Ritzer.
