The Eden Autism 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk is our biggest annual fundraising event, and we want to ensure businesses and community members get the most out of their 5K experience. That’s why we’re hosting a 5K Sponsor Breakfast on August 1! Here are five benefits you and your company can gain by attending this year’s breakfast.
Engage your employees
Volunteering has countless benefits for companies. Studies have shown that engaging your employees through volunteerism helps retain and attract employees, instills company values, and generates team building. Whether you’re looking to create a company 5K team, volunteer as a group, or simply cheer on other runners, our 5K offers plenty of ways to foster camaraderie among your employees.
Increase your brand’s awareness
This year’s 5K will be bigger than ever before! We’re partnering with the Plainsboro Centennial Celebration to host a family-friendly festival after the race. Attendees can enjoy treats from international food trucks, live music, and activities for the whole family.
More than 1,500 people from the Central Jersey region are expected to attend, making this the perfect event to showcase your company while making a difference. At the breakfast you’ll learn more about the activities planned for this year’s event and how your company can get involved.
Learn fundraising tips and tools from Eden experts
Fundraising can seem overwhelming if you don’t know where to start. At the breakfast, you’ll have the opportunity to meet Eden staff and longtime event sponsors who will offer guidance on how to execute a successful group fundraiser. Learn how to send engaging emails, create team-building exercises, and other activities that will generate buzz across your workplace.
