Sponsorship Opportunities


Being a sponsor at the 2016 Thanksgiving Day 5K means that you are just as big as the event. Our sponsorship opportunities are endless and they can be tailored to meet the needs of your organization along with the needs of the event. Sponsors play a tremendous role in the success of this event, and we are always looking for organizations who want to SEE their investment in action. Not only will we exchange your contribution for second-to-none exposure, we will also SHOW you how your contribution helps support our neighbors in need on a daily basis. Father Joe's Villages tours are very impactful and highly encouraged for any organization who wants to truly understand how they help, beyond putting on a great 5k!

Our Thanksgiving Day 5k is the oldest and most traditional of its kind in San Diego. Thousands of families and friends alike come every year to participate in our turkey trot located in beautiful Balboa Park and give back to their neighbors in need. Your partnership with us for the Thanksgiving Day 5K will directly tie into the overall vision of goodwill and citizenship that Father Joe's Villages is famous for. We hope you will join us in making the biggest impact yet in 2016!
