Be a Sponsored 5K runner

​Being a sponsored runner is your opportunity to step up and make a huge impact. Our sponsored runners do so much to bring hope to Heather's Home Ministries by taking the time to invite others into the process. 

By raising $60 or more, your race fee will be waived! If you get excited about this, you'll see hundreds - if not thousands - of dollars come in!\

If registering online, use the code SPONSOR at checkout to receive a free entry OR complete and mail in your Registration Form by 4/30, if you want to receive a t-shirt. Registrations received after 4/30 will not receive a t-shirt.

How to Register as a Sponsored Runner:

  1. Complete and mail in your Registration Form or register online by 4/30 to receive a free t-shirt.

  2. Download and print off the Sponsorship Tracking Form (checks can be made payable to Heather's Home 5K or donations may be made online).

    • Download a Heather's Home info sheet to share with the people you ask to sponsor you.​

  3. Collect $60+ in Sponsorships before 6/4.

  4. Bring your completed Sponsorship Tracking Form and money raised to the Registration Table between 7:30am and 8:15am on Race Day. Or if you prefer to send the money ahead of time, please mail ONE check, payable to Heathers Home 5K, to P.O. Box 65, Elmira, NY 14902.

We look forward to seeing you at the 5K! 


Because we are volunteer-based, 100% of all proceeds from the HH5K are used to care for the Heather's Home kids. It pays for them to have a home, to eat good food, to have nice clothes, to go to school and get educated, and to have a family to look out for them. These are things most of them didn't have before they were rescued! Getting sponsored gives you a greater opportunity to help provide for these sweet kids.
