For the past decade, ARC, an organization serving persons with disabilities, has assembled the Anthem Richmond Marathon runners’ packets for Sports Backers. This year’s total is 16,000.
“We are excited to work with ARC again this year to assemble the race packets for the Anthem Richmond Marathon. Participants always look forward to getting their packets and ARC does an outstanding job,” said Megan Schultz, Anthem Richmond Marathon race director for Sports Backers. “This is a fantastic community event, and we’re proud to work with a great community partner like ARC.”
The effort begins on November 1, with ARC program participants assembling sponsor and other promotional materials, as well as valuable race information, for the packets distributed in advance of the race on November 12, 2016.
“We are all winners in this effort,“ said Mike Foley, assistant vice president of business development at ARC. “The partnership of the Greater Richmond ARC and Sports Backers shows how working together can help everyone reach the finish line.’’
