The Navarre Press is the prime media sponsor for the 4th Annual Run for the Reef 5K and Kid’s 1 Mile Fun Run.    In addition to helping promote the race through various communications channels, the Navarre Press will be on hand the day of the race to provide full event coverage and finish line photo services to record your moments of glory as you cross the finish line.

The Run for the Reef is the main fundraiser for the Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary.   A great way to support the diving and snorkeling reefs and Make Navarre Snorkelicious is through tax deductible donations to sponsor the run through one of the event’s many sponsorship opportunities.  Registration for the race is open online via  Active.com and  by downloading and completing the registration form on our website.

Fundraising:

    Run for the Reef 5K – October 10th

Our sponsorship dance card is filling up – We have six silver sponsors and four bronze sponsors along with our major sponsor (The Navarre Press). If you would like to be a bronze sponsor for a $100 donation and get your name or your businesses name on the back of the inaugural race t-shirt you can sign up here. We’d like to get all the sponsors confirmed by the end of August so we can firm up the T-Shirt design.

Thanks to the following folks that have stepped forward to make our fall run a success

Race Director – Jeff Harris
Registration Coordinator – Nancy Sandler
Course Director – Tony Giangiulio
T-Shirt/Amenities/Awards Coordinator – Andy Epstein
Race Day Merchandising (Kiss The Fish/T-Shirt Sales) – Claudia Kremer

The Race Committee sill needs a few more volunteers in the following areas:
1. Post-Race Refreshments Coordinator
2. Results Coordinator
3. Finish Line Coordinator
4. Start Line Coordinator
5. Aid Station Coordinator

No experience is necessary. This is a great way to get involved and informed about the Marine Sanctuary and the help Make Navarre Snorkelicious. Also – you don’t have to be one of the coordinators to help out on race day. If you can help with setup, breakdown, course monitoring or a myriad of other things we’ll need to do your efforts will be appreciated.

Email Mark Griffith at navbms@navarrebeachmarinesanctuary.com or call at 850-677-1875 to volunteer.

    Impact100 Grant

We had a great site visit and have answered all the follow up questions from the environmental focus group. (There are five focus groups – one grant of $108,000 is issued in each focus group). The Impact 100 committee(s) will meet again to discuss and analyze the grant applications and information from the site visits. We will know where we stand in the competition for the environmental category by September 16th. The grants will be awarded in October. Think good thoughts….we are hoping to use the grant for funding the sound side reefs.

Permitting:

Our environmental consultant has completed work on all the permit applications and they are ready for the county’s signature and official submission. We will post the permit information here on our website this weekend and the public is invited to comment on them at our next monthly meeting (August 25th). Immediately after the August 25th meeting we will deliver to the County Administrator the permit applications (along with a summary of the comments from our meeting). We believe the county will officially submit them within a couple of weeks of receiving them.

Community Awareness:

The Navarre Press promotional video about the Marine Sanctuary should be complete today. We plan to publish it on our website and on YouTube. We can also use it to display at any community events or festivals or to aide presentations to the many area civic groups.

We are currently scheduled to present information about the Marine Sanctuary and our efforts to the following groups:

NBLRA – Saturday Aug 15 – 10 AM
Chamber Coffee and Commerce – Friday August 28th – 7:30 AM
Hurlburt Dive Club – Thursday September 3rd – 6 PM
Navarre Rotary Club – Thursday Sep 17th – Noon
Pensacola Rotary Club – Tuesday Sep 29th – Noon

Next monthly meeting – Tuesday, August 25th – Navarre Visitor Center Conference Room (enter through rear sound side door please).
