Putting on a first-class charity event takes hard work and dedication.  And the monetary support of a caring community.  Whether you own a business and would like to become a corporate sponsor, or you are an individual or family who would like to sponsor a runner, there many opportunities to help us achieve our fundraising goals.


More than anything else, we are seeking cash donations from the greater business community of Naperville and the western suburbs.  100% of the money your business donates goes towards improving the daily life of students at Longwood Elementary School in Naperville. Our race expenses are covered by the registration fees, and our planning committee is made up of unpaid volunteers. That means every cent goes directly to the school. The Longwood PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please consider making a tax deductible charitable donation that will directly enrich the lives of these deserving students.


Improving the lives of students at Longwood School is a great reason to donate. But we like to offer our sponsors even more value for their charitable donations. The Run With The Lions 5K is a unique opportunity to engage with over 600 participants along with Longwood families and volunteers. We actively promote our business community sponsors to all race participants, the entire Longwood school body, and our enthusiastic alumni. Each increasing level of sponsorship will receive a corresponding increased level of promotion opportunity.

Yes, I want to Sponsor the Run With The Lions!
