Dear Potential Sponsor,

The Forrest Spence Fund is an official 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 2007 in memory of Robert Forrest Spence. In honor of Forrest, first born child of Brittany and David Spence, the organization strives to support families dealing with similar difficult situations and to give back to regional children's hospitals like Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, and St. Jude Children's Hospital, where the amazing medical staff fights for thousands of children each year.

Our mission is to assist with the non-medical needs of critically or chronically ill children and the families throughout the Mid-South. Families in the care of the Forrest Spence Fund are considered individually and are treated with dignity as they receive key physical resources and emotional support through one of life’s darkest journeys. We also meet the needs of some of the area hospitals by providing staff support, medical equipment and supplies and partnering on special projects such as the Forrest Spence Sibling Playroom at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

We would like to invite you to join us in sponsoring the 11th Annual Forrest Spence 5K Run scheduled for August 25, 2018. With over 1,800 participants in 2017 we are expecting an even bigger turn-out this year! Adults and children alike love the scenic course, as well as the food, live music, races and games for children, prizes and much more! This year we are excited to announce that we will be partnering with Oak Hall and Vineyard Vines to make this year’s race the biggest yet!

Please consider becoming a sponsor and joining us this year in our mission of compassion! Sponsorship opportunities are attached. Please fill out the form and return it with your payment to Forrest Spence Fund, P.O. Box 770478, Memphis, TN 38177. Sponsors will enjoy strategic exposure, a meaningful connection with hundreds of families in our region and beyond, and most importantly, the opportunity to give back and help touch the lives of hurting families in our community.
