Austin P.O.W.E.R. 5K / The P.O.W.E.R. of Life
(People Organizing Wealth & Economic Resources)

The Austin POWER of Life 5K has become a beacon of light and a ray of hope for those who love and care about the well-being of the Austin community.  Last year we drew upwards of 1000 friends, family, residents and elected officials, including the Mayor of the City of Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who seems to have made the Austin POWER of Life 5K an annual stop – showing support for our community. The “Soul City Corridor” on West Chicago Avenue has begun to bustle with activity and signs reading “Grand Opening” and “Coming Soon.”  It is quickly becoming an economic driver and cultural hub for the Austin Community, similar to other ethnic neighborhoods such as Greektown, Little Italy, and Chinatown.

The organizers of the Austin P.O.W.E.R. 5K Run/Walk invite you to be a sponsor for the upcoming 4th Annual 5K Community Fun Run/Walk and Marketplace Festival being held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 8:30 am, commencing at 5900 West Chicago Avenue. We anticipate more than 1,000 community and Chicago area residents to participate in what has become an annual community event. In addition to participating in the 5K Run/Walk, there will be a Marketplace Festival which will showcase community businesses and cultural arts within a broad spectrum of entertainment.

Your sponsorship will be an effective means to maintain strong corporate brand awareness while establishing relationships in the Austin Community. Your sponsorship will not only support the expenses associated with this event but proceeds will help to offset the cost of our 15th District Police Department Explorer program and CME as well.
