Sponsor and Vendor Opportunities

DONNA Marathon Weekend returns February 3 – 5, 2023. This year’s theme: Destination DONNA, celebrates DONNA Marathon Weekend as a beautiful destination race inviting both locals and visitors to the City of Jacksonville and The Beaches to celebrate breast cancer survivorship. The theme also reinforces The DONNA Foundation’s destination vision of a future without breast cancer as it celebrates its 20th anniversary year.

20 Years. Countless Miles. One Destination: to Finish Breast Cancer.

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.
