Sponsorship Information

We have two groups involved in the DHT Press Run/Walk this year, KidSport and the Army Cadets.

As a club we feel that these two groups provide valuable programs that allow the youth in our community to live an active and healthy lifestyle. We are looking for sponsorship for this event and are hoping that you will partner with us for this year’s race.
