Over the past 4 years the Wa Wa Wally Waddle has raised over $15,000 in camper scholarships. This money is used to send children from the Hudson Valley to YMCA Camp Segowea (pictured above). Some of the money raised comes from your race registration fees and we thank you for your support every year. Without you there would be no Wally Waddle. But much of your registration fee goes toward putting on the race: there are t-shirts and awards to buy, porta-potties to be rented, credit card fees for online registration, security to be hired from Vassar College, food, drinks, face paint, balloon animals… anyway you get the idea. We could, like many fundraising races, charge $25 $30 or even $50 for a 5k race, but we always strive to balance our fundraising goals with our desire to keep the event accessible to largest number of runners possible.
That is where our amazing sponsors come in. Each year business from the Poughkeepsie area have generously donated to the Wally Waddle allowing us to give kids who would otherwise miss out, an opportunity to attend YMCA Camp Segowea. This year’s sponsors include:
- Mid-Hudson Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons P.C
- Tubby’s Bathroom Resurfacing
- Morris Associates Engineering Consultants, P.L.L.C
- Mid-Hudson Road Runners Club
- The Brown Derby
- Caffe Aurora
- Radio Woodstock WDST 100.1
- Rudy’s Bagels
- Justin Feldman Physical Therapy
I encourage you to support our sponsor’s businesses as they have supported your community.
If you are a business owner (or know one) please consider changing a child’s life, and sponsoring the Wally Waddle.
