This year, I am joining the Chad Bass Family and their friends to
create a memorial 10k run/walk in honor of their son, brother, and friend Ryan Bass
who was tragically killed in an automotive accident in 2012. Ryan was an avid
runner since his days on the Belle Vernon Area track team, in college as part of
the California University of PA track team, and his post collegiate running
endeavors. Most recently, and up until his passing he was a volunteer track
coach for his alma mater Belle Vernon Area.
On Saturday, July 11th, people in this community and
from all over western Pennsylvania will be participating in a 5k run/walk in
memory of Ryan and his love for the sport of running. All the race proceeds will
be used to provide track scholarships for Belle Vernon Area track and field
athletes and to keep the race going for years to come.
The purpose of this letter is to ask for
sponsorship or donation toward the Running with Ryan Memorial 10K race. Attached
is a list of materials that we need to run the event and what comes with each
donation. We will have T-shirts, Signs, and a Website to promote the race and
the businesses and people that donate to this worthwhile cause.
If you would like to donate please fill out the attached sheet or contact
the Fundraising coordinator listed.
Contributions of any size make a difference! This is our Second
year putting this together and any help you could offer would be greatly
appreciated by the Race committee, the Chad Bass Family, and the members of the
Belle Nouvo Area track team.
Thank you for your consideration
