Local businesses support GYL 5K

More than a dozen local businesses have come on board as sponsors for the Goochland Young Life 5K!

A big thank you goes to Custom Brick and Stone Corporation who, for the second year, has signed on as the 5K’s top sponsor! The family-operated custom masonry company was started in 1989 by Johnny McLaughlin, who serves on Goochland Young Life’s Adult Ministry Team along with his wife, Karen.

We’re also welcoming back Goochland Dentistry and 250 SportsGrill, who are in their second years as leadership-level sponsors. Peter R. Murchie, D.D.S., at Goochland Dentistry was recently honored for the third year by his peers as a "Top Dentist" in Virginia Living Magazine. 250 Sports Grill is a locally owned and operated sports themed restaurant that features a TV every 100 square feet.

Thanks, too, to first-time sponsor Team Logistics, whose primary line of business is commercial furniture delivery and installation with more than 100 years of combined experience on their team. In addition, they offer warehousing, inventory management services and summer storage services for college students.

We’re also grateful to the 5K’s additional sponsors: Brooks Auto Sales, Inc., EZ Ship, Goochland Family YMCA, Goochland Physical Therapy, Hudgins Dentistry, Live Free Group of Richmond, Parker Properties, Inc., State Farm Insurance, and von Schilling Lawn Care.  Thanks, also, to New Balance who’ll supply prizes to 5K participants!

Our sponsors are a big part of the Goochland Young Life 5K’s success. When you get a chance, please let them know how much we appreciate their support!

All proceeds from the 5K will go to support the local staff person and volunteer leaders. You can support Goochland Young Life, too, by registering for the race and heading to the start line at 9am on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013!
