Anniversary Run LogoSponsorship Opportunities for KNC's Anniversary Run

The Kalamazoo Nature Center (KNC) has often been referred to as a “hidden gem” in the community. In 2020, KNC is celebrating its 60th Anniversary! No longer hidden, KNC is now one of the country’s largest nature centers, with a reputation for leadership in research, education, and conservation. We invite you to celebrate with us by sponsoring KNC’s 60th Anniversary Virtual Run. This opportunity replaces our traditional Earth Day Celebration Run, which was canceled in April due to COVID-19.

With safety foremost in mind, participants are invited to complete their virtual 5K Run and/or Kids  Raccoon 1K during the month of October at a location of their choosing. Several courses will be marked on KNC propert for participants to choose from. While participants are welcome to run anywhere in their community, we’re certain they’ll find KNC’s trails to be among the most inviting in southwest Michigan.

Sponsorship places your business in front of our 6,200 membership base and the greater Kalamazoo community. Proceeds support KNC’s early childhood education programs, which provide high-quality, nature-based education for children ages 3 and 4.
