Sidewalk Squad Corporate Donor Program

Sidewalk Squad Packages for the 2016-2017 will be available beginning on May 5, 2016.

Your company can partner with the Chevron Houston Marathon Run for a Reason program by becoming a Sidewalk Squad Corporate Charity Donor and help raise funds for one of the participating nonprofits.

As a corporate charity donor, your company will be aligned with a 40+ year community event that has become the nation’s premier winter marathon. Plus, your company’s name will be seen by more than 30,000 participants, 7,000 volunteers, 250,000 spectators and over half a million television viewers – all while contributing a tax deductible donation to the Official Charity of your choice.

The 2016-2017 Sidewalk Squad Corporate Charity Donor packages offer a variety of opportunities for local businesses and organizations to be recognized as a prominent supporter of the Chevron Houston Marathon and the Run for a Reason charity program.
