Annual Sherman-Steichen Memorial Run

We are part of the Creighton University Doctor of Physical Therapy Class of 2013 and are co-chairs of the 15th Annual Sherman-Steichen 5K/10K Memorial Run, working with the Physical Therapy Leadership Guild and Phi Lambda Sigma Pharmacy Leadership Society. We are currently seeking financial sponsors to help give our Memorial Run participants a great experience while being able to provide much needed funding for Creighton pharmacy and physical therapy student scholarships.

How can you help?
We would be grateful if you consider helping us as a sponsor for the Memorial Run. Your generous sponsorship of $50 or more will be recognized on the Sherman-Steichen Memorial Run T-shirts. If your business would be interested, we would also be delighted to provide a table for you to offer products to participants and their families and would gladly recognize the business on the T-shirts.

Sponsorship will help defray event expenses for items such as race bibs and track markers, timing equipment, audio equipment, event banners, medals for our winners and food. This will allow a greater portion of the monies raised to be contributed to the Brett G. Sherman Memorial Scholarship and the Nicholas Steichen Memorial Scholarship endowments.

Who does this help?
The Annual Sherman-Steichen Memorial Run was established in 1997 to raise money for pharmacy and physical therapy student scholarships given in memory of Brett Sherman and Nick Steichen. Brett Sherman was a pharmacy student in the class of 1999. He was dependable, considerate and his good nature was evidenced in his ready grin. Nick Steichen was a member of the physical therapy class of 2000. He was intelligent, hard-working and always made sure he had fun. The Memorial Run is held every year to celebrate their lives, and every year we are honored to have their family members participate in the event.

2012 Event Information - we are expecting over 200 people to participate!
Sunday, April 22 at 1 p.m.
Lake Zorinsky Shelter Reservation #4

If you are unable to provide sponsorship at this time, please consider participating in the Memorial Run. Registration information can be found here.

Please call or email to let us know of your interest or if you have further questions.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.
