Sponsorship Opportunities

Join the effort to end ALS and support the St. Peter ALS Regional Center

Please join us in the fight against ALS by becoming a sponsor of the 2017 (9th Annual) Cherry Blossom 5K Race for ALS and 2K Walk for Hope. Last year our corporate sponsors and more than 800 race participants and festival attendees generated over $15,000 in donations to the ALS Regional Center and our other community beneficiaries.

Since 2009 The Cherry Blossom Race for ALS has donated over $65,000 to the Center. The event was promoted extensively by WNYT (News Channel 13) and received coverage in the Schenectady Daily Gazette’s Your Niskayuna and The Jewish World. The Ice Bucket Challenge became a viral sensation with many celebrities, politicians, and sport figures taking the challenge and raising much needed awareness about ALS, furthering the fight against this deadly disease but there is still much work to be done.

Our 9th annual Race and Walk is scheduled for Sunday, April 30, 2017. The event is run by the brotherhood of Congregation Gates of Heaven, a men’s organization dedicated to providing services and contributions to the local community. One hundred percent of the proceeds of the race will be used to support the ALS Regional Center at St. Peter’s Hospital as well as other service organizations and projects in the Capital District. We are continuously working to grow and improve this event and the next race will feature electronic chip timing by Albany Running Exchange Event Productions, the area’s premier race timing company. Traffic to our website, 5kraceforals.com, continues to thrive, increasing the exposure of our corporate sponsors to the community. Over the last year our site had over 6000 visits and over 16,000 page views.
