HSHC Sponsorship

Dear Prospective Donor,

Cancer touches all of our lives. The Incredible Bank - Hope Starts Here Challenge is dedicated to supporting families affected by brain cancer through treatment, research, education, and advocacy. In its 12 year history, the event has raised more than $300,000 to support the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center - collaboration between Northern Michigan University, U.P. Health System – Marquette, and the Superior Health Foundation.

Year after year, we continue to be amazed at the amount of people coming out to support this great cause, many of whom have been with us since the beginning. Snow, sleet, rain, or sun - our supporters continue to brave all of the elements thrown at us in this unique early season event, and goes to show why we are blessed to be able to call a community like Marquette our home! Each year the event grows and the heartfelt stories of loved ones affected by brain cancer sadly increase. The needs are greater than ever, and that’s why we’re asking for your help.

We’ll continue our half marathon, 5 and 10K and leisure walk as well as the wildly popular run - bike - run duathalon. Competitive and recreational athletes, runners, bikers and families will be part of the event on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at Marquette’s Lakeview Arena.

The sponsorship levels are listed for your consideration. If you purchase a sponsorship, a Hope Starts Here committee volunteer will contact you, but please feel free to call Josh Bal at 906-204-0510 if you have questions. Also, click here to see our 2019 fundraising goals!

Thank you!
