Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
On September 7, 2013, SEO.com is sponsoring the Racing with Passion 5K Run/Walk for Charity in Salt Lake City, Utah as well as hosting a Corporate Challenge to encourage other companies to take part in the race’s charitable efforts. The 5K will start on East Capitol Blvd and end at the entrance of Memory Grove Park, making it a fun and beautiful course.
Racing with Passion donates a portion of the proceeds from each of its races to the One Hour for Life charity, which provides emergency first response, preventative medicine, and nutritional education in developing areas of the world. The organization’s stated goal is to design socioeconomically relevant educational programs to create self-sufficient healthcare platforms.
Individual registration for the race is $30.00 for adults leading up to the day of the race, and participants can still register the morning of the race for the same price between 7:00 and 7:45 a.m. Participants will receive custom finisher medals and refreshments as well as a range of other items. Awards will be presented to the top 3 overall male and female runners and for the top 3 in each age division.
To register a team for the Corporate Challenge, companies can contact Stephanie at racingwithpassion(at)gmail(dot)com to create a team of 5-10 people (if more than 10 people are interested in participating, a second team can be fielded). The finish times of the top 3 runners on each team will determine the winners.
The top 3 winning teams will receive a plaque to hang in their offices and everyone will be awarded a special finisher medal on top of the individual and overall awards presented by the race. SEO.com will also host its own special awards ceremony one week after the race to present the plaques and awards and other surprises.
SEO.com is also using its social networking channels to spread the word about the charitable work done through the organization and all the other companies who are sponsoring or sending a team to participate in the race. The event will use the hashtag: #slc5k for individual participants and sponsors to get involved with each other and track the activities leading up to the race.
