The Chase Race began in 2006 as a way for Don and Cheryl Potter to honor their thirteen-year-old son who suffered a traumatic brain injury and died in 2005. He loved running and animals, and Chase Race is a way of remembering him by combining his passions. In 2015 we were proud to donate over $15,000 to two great organizations – Friends of Conway Animal Shelter and Arkansas Children’s Hospital for brain trauma research. This brings the total money raised since the first event in 2006 to over $118,000.
We would appreciate you joining us in remembering Chase and supporting these two organizations. Four levels of sponsorship are suggested:
- Grand Champion – $1000
- Best of Show – $500
- Best of Breed – $250
- Best of Variety – $150
Please email Don Potter at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will provide you with more specific information.
If you would like to be involved but are not able to contribute at one of these levels, there are many other ways to be involved, such as:
- Provide “give-aways” or coupons for the race packets
- Volunteer at the event
- Register for one of the events and come join in the fun.
- If you are not a runner or are not available on race day, consider registering for the event and letting your entry fee go directly to the supported organizations.
Again, please email Don Potter and he or one of the board members will respond and appreciate your willingness to be a part of this great event.
