Disaster relief event nets $7,400

LOCO Sports Inc. presented the Disaster Relief 5K Road Race in Exeter on Dec. 2. Approximately 550 runners and walkers registered for the event, resulting in nearly $7,400 being raised.

LOCO Sports teamed up with Margaritas Restaurant to present the Disaster Relief 5K walk and run, supporting the Red Cross’s efforts for disaster relief to those affected by Superstorm Sandy and other similar disasters. Participants ran and walked for a great cause and enjoyed a fajita-fueled party afterward.

One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the Disaster Relief 5K are being be donated by LOCO Sports to the American Red Cross for disaster relief. The race proceeds were just over $6,200 while individual donations brought in another $1,150, for a grand total of nearly $7,400.

LOCO successfully engaged with their vendors and services partners, who offered to participate at reduced or waived rates, thus increasing the amount of proceeds for the cause.

LOCO Sports is a New Hampshire-based event management company that presents 13 running races across New England.
