Sponsorship Oppertunities

We need sponsors to make this event a success! We are looking for business sponsorships, along with participant’s entry fees to help cover the expenses of this event. This is the primary fundraiser for EMT supplies and equipment at JMFD. We are proud to announce that this past year we were able to upgrade our emergency response capabilities to paramedic level! This means a higher level of care is available to residents at a much-reduced cost. JMFD emergency responders would not be able to perform what they do for the people of our community without the support of generous people like you. As the Eastern Iowa Corridor continues to grow, JMFD’s coverage of over 70 square miles is going to demand more and more equipment, supplies, and personnel needed to respond to emergency situations.

Sponsorships may come in the form of either monetary donations or in-kind donations (such as food, gift cards, etc.). Specific expenses we must cover include: t-shirts, awards for participants, food/beverages and race equipment. Any business sponsorship funds that exceed expenses will be donated to JMFD.
