5K Race to Representation: Become A Sponsor

wpi_athleta 2014

Virtual Goody Bags 

We've gone GREEN! Your virtual goody bag includes coupons, offers and special information from our Race to Representation Sponsors. Visit here. 

Every registered participant that provides will receive an email invitation to the Virtual Goody Bag one week prior to the event. Registered runners will still receive their race bib, timing chip, re-usable bag and race shirt at packet pickup.

The Virtual Goody Bag will include race day information, exclusive offers, coupons, giveaways and messages from the Race to Representation event sponsors and exhibitors.

Immediately after the event, the Virtual Goody Bag updates to include Official Race Results. At this time, you will receive another email invitation to visit your 'Results Goody Bag' and also have a final opportunity to take advantage of the goods before the bag closes.

Organizations interested in being in the 2015 Women & Politics Institute's 5K Race to Representation, please contact My-Lien Le via email mylienle@american.edu or 202.885.3103.


Sponsor

The Women & Politics Institute at American University strives to close the gender gap in political leadership. Our mission is straightforward: we provide young women with academic and practical training that encourages them to become involved in the political process; we facilitate research that enhances our understanding of the challenges women face in the political arena; and we give women the skills to run for public office, pursue political careers, and develop their leadership capabilities. Every day, we do everything we can to ensure that women’s representation in all realms of politics increases.

But in order to offer more courses, enroll more students, conduct more research, convene more special events, and ensure that more women will have a seat at all of the tables where the most important decisions are made, we need your help!

Join us in closing the gender gap in political leadership by sponsoring our third annual 5K Race to Representation. Last year’s race was a fantastic event. With dozens of sponsors, more than 400 registered runners, and hundreds of spectators, we called attention to women’s under-representation and publicized our efforts to change the status quo.

Help us close the gender gap in political leadership and Become a Sponsor Now or Contribute to the Women & Politics Institute.
