Dear [Recipient’s Name],

It is with great excitement that I tell you I am training for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville half marathon as a member of the “Run Barefoot” team for Barefoot Republic Camp. I will be completing 13 weeks of training for the race on Saturday, April 25. I am writing to ask if you might consider sponsoring my participation in this race and, by doing so, help out an organization that I am passionate about!

Barefoot Republic Camp is a Christ-centered summer camp for students K-12th grade from diverse racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds. They intentionally recruit 50% of students from middle/upper income homes and scholarship 50% of students from low-income or refugee homes. Their heart is to create a safe place for cross-cultural relationships to form by teaching that we are all made in God’s image and to be in relationship with Him. Barefoot will be providing over $600,000 to over 1,250 students on scholarship this summer!

I have committed to raise at least $600 to support Barefoot and I am asking if you would consider joining me in this effort. Your tax-deductible donation will go directly to fund camper scholarships so that Barefoot will have even more opportunities to reach youth in the name of Jesus Christ. You can sponsor me by filling out and mailing in the enclosed pledge card with a check payable to Barefoot Republic Camp or by giving at the website below by clicking the Invest: Make A Difference link and listing my name as Runner.

Thank you so much for your consideration and for being a part of this significant period in my life – both as a participant for Run Barefoot in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville half marathon and as an advocate for Barefoot and its mission of uniting youth for God’s glory.
