Arc Race is a well-known community event that supports programs for people with developmental disabilities. The event would not be possible without the support of sponsors and in-kind contributions from companies, organizations and individuals. Arc Race benefits programs for people with developmental disabilities through the Arc of Onondaga Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.  Contributions to Arc Race may be tax-deductible.

We appreciate the generosity of those in our community who support the Arc Race and recognize them in a wide variety of ways. There are several sponsorship levels available.



Several sponsorship levels are available for those companies who would like great exposure to the Central New York community.  Sponsors receive a wide variety of benefits and at the same time help ensure programs for people with developmental disabilities remain available in our community.  Sponsorships range from Presenting Sponsor to Sprint Sponsor.  To find out which Sponsorship Level is right for you and to become a Sponsor, see our Arc Race Sponsor Packet.



You can feature your business or organization in our Arc Race program book, or even place a special message from you or your family in support of Arc or a particular participant!  Programs are distributed to all participants of the race as well as to other vendors and supporters. Placements are black and white.  Digital artwork (such as a PDF, JPEG or Adobe InDesign file) is preferred.  Artwork is due by by August 10 to guarantee placement in the program booklet and can be submitted to eventads@arcon.org.

Program sponsorships range from Full Page to Quarter Page spots.  To find out which size is right for you, or to reserve space, see our Sponsor Packet.
