May 17, 2011:
The Navarre Beach Marine Sanctuary Committee (NBMSC), a program of the Navarre Chamber Foundation, is pleased to announce that the Navarre Beach Leaseholders and Residents Association (NBLRA) has voted to become a Prime Sponsor of the 3rd Annual Run For The Reef 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Run on October 15, 2011. The Run For The Reef 5K Run/Walk and 1 Mile Fun Run benefits the NBMSC’s mission to bring shore-accessible snorkeling and diving reefs to both the Sound side and Gulf side waters off of beautiful Navarre Beach Park. The NBLRA’s generous $1000 gift, which will be presented to the NBMSC at 10a.m. on Saturday, May 21st at the Navarre Beach Marine Science Center, pushes the pre-race sponsorships for the Run For The Reef to record levels, insuring that this year’s event will be the most successful fund raising event ever to benefit the NBMSC. With the recent announcement of funding commitments for the actual construction of the reefs from Santa Rosa County and the TDC, the NBMSC looks forward to a point in the very near future where Navarre Beach Is Snorkelicious!! For more information on the Run For The Reef (including Race Registration forms) and the NBMSC’s mission, please visit our website at: www.navarrebeachmarinesanctuary.com.
The Marine Sanctuary Committee booth at this year’s Fun Fest was the place to be. Nancy Sandler (Community Awareness Coordinator) and her band of merry volunteers made a big splash telling visitors about the recent program status and providing information on what’s to come. T-shirts and bumper stickers were snapped up in record numbers and over $200 was raised to aid program improvements and reef maintenance once the reefs are installed. Additionally – twenty new volunteers signed up to help Make Navarre Snorkelicious!
On May 7th Nancy and company were at it again – this time at the Sunset Stampede, handing out Run for the Reef registration forms and providing information on the reef program to the over large crowd at the annual evening 5K headquartered at Juana’s.
Thanks to all the volunteers that helped man the booth at these events!
The Navarre Beach Leaseholders and Residents Association (NBLRA) will be a Prime Sponsor of the third annual Run for the Reef 5K. After being a race shirt logo sponsor last year the organization voted to increase their role in the event to that of a prime sponsorship. The move indicates their strong and continued support for the event and the Marine Sanctuary effort to establish snorkeling and diving reefs off Navarre Beach County Park.
A check presentation will be held at the next NBLRA meeting on May 21st with press and the public invited.
The Marine Sanctuary Committee is thrilled to have the NBLRA in this role and is looking forward to the October 15th event with great anticipation. Already sponsorships for the event have increased over last year’s total and participation is sure to be high. We’ll be unveiling a new logo this year and will enjoy a great award’s ceremony on the newly expanded Navarre Beach Pier Deck. It’s early but we’ve already gotten a few registrants and have distributed registration forms to the Navarre Pier and Run With It shoes in Fort Walton. Race registration is available on line at active.com and sponsorship registration is available online on this site’s Run Sponsorship page.
