3rd Annual Cowboy/Vaquero 5K Run

May 18, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Merced County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (MCHCC) cordially invites you to participate as a sponsor of the MCHCC Cowboy/Vaquero 5K Run/Walk. This event will raise funds for the MCHCC Scholarship Foundation. The Scholarship Foundation has been offering scholarships to high school seniors in the Merced area since 2019, helping student’s transition into higher education smoothly.

Your sponsorship helps defray the cost of organizing the event. Funds received from sponsorships are used to purchase T-shirts, awards, complimentary snacks, and beverages for each race participant. A portion of sponsorship proceeds will benefit the MCHCC Scholarship Foundation. There are various levels of sponsorship for the Vaquero/Cowboy 5K Run/Walk. Size and placement of logos on shirts and website are based on the sponsorship level and are limited.  To maximize the value of your businesses sponsorship we have set April 26th, 2019 as the sponsorship deadline.
