Sponsor and Vendor Opportunities

Through the Spring of 2021, all of our events will be delivered to you in a really unique, virtual way. In this time of social distancing, we’re going to come together virtually and celebrate DONNA finish lines… everywhere, together. We hope you will join us. The 14th Annual DONNA Virtual Marathon Weekend is set for February 12 – 14, 2021. #TogetherWeWill #EverywhereTogether

Background: DONNA The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer is the only marathon in the country dedicated to breast cancer research and care. The Inaugural race in February of 2008 earned rave reviews and eclipsed all expectations for a first time race with over 7,000 registered runners from all 50 states and 15 countries.  98 percent of runners surveyed said they would recommend DONNA to a friend. A signature event of The DONNA Foundation, DONNA Marathon Weekend generates an economic impact of up to $5 million for the local community and is a unique opportunity to bring together the breast cancer community to learn, collaborate and celebrate. Corporate partnership opportunities are designed to maximize brand exposure, align to philanthropic priorities, and provide a platform for employee engagement and team building.
