Angel Program Overview
Each $10 angel sponsorship, sponsors a full registration (timing chip, bib and shirt) for a free and reduced lunch student.
Angel sponsorships are awarded by school conselors based on need (and possibly other factors: enthusiam, training, etc)
What happens if there are more angels than students?
While we don't anticipate that situation, if we end up with more angels than students applying for a sponsorship, we will donate the extra funds will to the race's official charities.
How do students apply for an Angel sponsorship?
Free and reduced lunch students are encouraged to ask their school counselor about a sponsorship. Each school counselor (or other school designate) will be emailed codes that can be used to register for free.
If your school counselor isn't unfamiliar with the program, have them email firstname.lastname@example.org to get them started. Email email@example.com with your own questions/concerns or frustrations.
