Become a Sponsor

Dear Friends,

We are thrilled to announce that Run Jimmy Run is going virtual for 2021!

Even though we aren’t able to gather in large groups, we can still come together as a community.

As Run Jimmy Run goes virtual for 2021, so have our sponsorship opportunities. Sponsors have the ability to make sure their brand is front-and-center of our marketing materials via social media, email, text messaging and much more! As always, your brand can present their logo on our website, on the official Run Jimmy Run dri-fit shirts, and along our run routes. All proceeds benefit the Alzheimer’s Association WNY.

In 2019, nearly 400 participants of all ages came to Sahlen Field to support Run Jimmy Run and the Alzheimer’s Association WNY. Our 5K course was a big hit among the runners and the 1-mile walk was fun for the walkers. If you were part of the fun these past years – THANK YOU!!! 

Please consider joining us this year. Sponsorship of the Run Jimmy Run Charity 5K offers your organization the opportunity to promote your brand, align it with a respected local charity, celebrate our great city, and encourage healthy team-building activities. Research has found a connection between heart health and brain health, and running or walking with friends and families or a corporate team is a great way to promote both! Sponsorship levels range from $100 – $5,000. 

If you would like to become a sponsor, please download and fill out the sponsorship form PDF. Submit the completed sponsorship form by email to or by mail to:

6215 Sheridan Dr.
Suite 100
Amherst, NY 14221

Like Mayor Griffin, your participation in this race will celebrate Buffalo’s culture, heritage, and love of a great time while doing good for others. Many thanks for your support!

The Run Jimmy Run Committee, the Griffin Family & the Alzheimer’s Association WNY
