Race Sponsors

Year after year, we aim to promote a healthy community and non-violence through Herbie’s Hometown Loop (HHL).  We’d love for you to join us in keeping Jeremy’s spirit alive by lending a helping hand August 17, 2019, through in-kind donations, volunteerism, participation, financial assistance, and/or advertising for HHL.

***All funds raised from this year’s Herbie’s Hometown Loop will benefit the Bellefonte Area School District’s TRACK Project and a local family in need. 

Past years race profits were donated to The Jeremy Herbstritt Foundation with three goals in mind:

1. Building a community running track in Bellefonte,

2. *Maintaining our High School Scholarship Fund,

3. Benefiting local families in need, and

4. *Sustaining Jeremy’s Garden, offering a peaceful place to garden, and a resource to promote empathy and compassion toward the needs of others through gardening and delivering harvested vegetables and flowers to those facing trying times. (Currently both this project and the scholarship fund are funded by Jeremy’s family. ALL race proceeds from 2007 on were donated to the Track Fund in 2018.)

This year, we are specifically requesting business sponsorship in the form of door prizes, in-kind donations, and monetary donations.

All business sponsors will be acknowledged on our sponsor board displayed at the start of the race on race day morning and at the entrance/exit to the BBQ dinner. The event itself will be advertised via the area’s running clubs, local newspapers, and radio stations. Lastly, business sponsorship will be advertised here on our race website.

Check donations may be made payable to The Jeremy Herbstritt Foundation and mailed to PO Box 238, Bellefonte, PA 16823 (c/o Margaret Herbstritt, Foundation President). Donations must be received no later than August 2, 2019 in order for advertising materials to be printed in a timely fashion.

Thank you in advance for considering supporting Herbie’s Hometown Loop. We cannot possibly describe in words how grateful we are for your continued support year and again.
