Running to give our students the Edge in the community!


Welcome Future Sponsors!

Letter to our Future Sponsors


Dear supporter, 

I am pleased to announce that Aramark will be having its 2nd annual 5k Fun Run on Saturday, November 2nd entitled, “The Edge 5k Fun Run Presents: FROST RUN!” The 5K run will be on the campus of Virginia Wesleyan University campus. This run is in support of VWU’s Excellence Fund. The Excellence Fund is a fund that assist students with funded scholarships and grants to continue their schooling. We are actively seeking partner organizations that can serve as event sponsors. 

We have different types of sponsorship packets ranging from Gold sponsor to Contributing Sponsor (product and in-kind donations). Last year was great and we are looking forward to this year being even bigger! 

We invite you to consider joining us on November 2nd from 9am- 12pm. YOUR support of this event not only benefits the Excellence Fund but the overall health and well-being of our community. We would actively promote each sponsor, your company’s name will be included on the website, possibly on event t-shirts, and other press materials as we heavily promote this event.

We have also included a second part to our event. We have partnered with the Samaritan House to do a winter drive! So, make sure you bring socks, scarfs, gloves, and coats so we can make a difference in a family’s life. The Samaritan House provides emergency and permanent housing, support services, outreach to victims of domestic violence and homeless families. Samaritan House is committed to fostering personal safety, growth self-sufficiency in adults and children. So, make sure you come and tell a friend where they should be on November 2nd! 

If you have any questions about the race or sponsorship opportunities, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We ask that all supporters Commitment form is returned by October 24, 2019.  Email us with any questions or concerns at
