Dear Owner/Manager:


This year the Moravec family and their friends will hold the 11th annual 5k run/walk in honor of their son, brother and friend Ryan Moravec who was tragically killed in an automotive accident in 2012. Ryan was an avid runner since his days on the Belle Vernon Area track team, in college as part of the California University of PA track team and during his post-collegiate endeavors. Most recently, and until his passing, he was a volunteer track coach for his alma mater Belle Vernon Area. 

On Saturday, June 29, people in this community and from all over western Pennsylvania will be participating in a 5k run/walk in memory of Ryan and his love for the sport of running. Race proceeds will be used to provide track scholarships for Belle Vernon Area & Ringgold track and field athletes and to keep the race going for years to come. One male and one female athlete from BVA and one track athlete from Ringgold will receive a scholarship based on their academic and athletic accomplishments each year.
The purpose of this letter is to ask for sponsorship, coupons or items for race bags, or donations toward the Running with Ryan 5K race. Attached is a list of materials that we need to run the event and what comes with each donation. We will have t-shirts, signs and a website to promote the race and the businesses/people that donate to this worthwhile cause.  If you would like to donate, please fill out the attached sheet or contact the fundraiser coordinator, Amanda Moravec DeMedio.


Contributions of any size make a difference! This is our eleventh year putting this together and any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated by the race committee, the Moravec family and the members of the Belle Vernon Area/Ringgold track teams.


Thank you for your consideration.




The Race Committee
