Katy Resurrection Run Adds New Sponsors

By  | 

The Katy Resurrection Run hosted by Faith West and Katy/Fort Bend Christian Magazines is off to a great start. More community partners are stepping up to support the Run through sponsorships. A total of six community partners are joining title sponsors B&B Butchers and Restaurant as sponsors.

“It is amazing to see how each of these businesses are using their gifts to help the community,” Joseph Menslage, Katy/Fort Bend Christian Magazines publisher and Katy Resurrection Run founder said. “We are thrilled and thankful to have their support.”

State Farm Insurance Agent Matt Schomburg and State Representative John Zerwas have joined the team as bronze sponsors. Katy News and Covering Katy will be media sponsors, and ER Katy will be the medical sponsor. Christian trial lawyers, Simmons and Fletcher deserve an honorable mention for their generosity. Each of these community partners is equally excited to be a part of the inaugural event.

“It is more of a blessing to be able to give back to the community that has supported our business for so long,” Schomburg said. “Plus, knowing that they are out there doing good things for different non-profits makes us feel good to be a part of it.”

By supporting the Run these businesses will be supporting the many organizations Faith West’s Eagle Initiative supports. The Eagle Initiative is Faith West’s outreach to the community where they give Faith West camp and school scholarships, and partner with numerous community organizations to make a difference.

“The Katy News is a paper that supports the Katy community. As one of our regular advertisers we try to support any event that Faith West does,” Pat Wilson, The Katy News owner and publisher said. “It’s run for the education of our youth and to help the children achieve great things in their lives. I think it’s a great cause and something we want to support.”

Organizations the Eagle Initiative benefits include Caring 4 Katy, Good Shepherd, Sunshine Kids, and Sunshine Thru the Rain. The Eagle Initiative’s impact is far reaching as some of the organizations benefit children and families from downtown Houston to the greater area.

Through the Eagle Initiative Faith West is able to open its many facilities like Camp West and Lake West to community organizations at no cost to host events and activities. This includes events like a Christmas experience for children within Child Protective Services (CPS) and a CPS adoption day where adoptions increased by 400%.

“The Katy News is a paper that supports the Katy community. As one of our regular advertisers we try to support any event that Faith West does,” Pat Wilson, The Katy News owner and publisher said. “It’s a run for the education of our youth and to help the children achieve great things in their lives. I think it’s a great cause and something we want to get support.”

The first annual Katy Resurrection Run is scheduled for Good Friday, April 14, 2017. For more information about the Katy Resurrection Run visit resurrectionrunkaty.com or contact Joseph Menslage at info@resurrectionrunkaty.org.com or (281) 777-9790.

“We are super excited,” Jason Brown, ER Katy general manager said. “We are glad to be a part of the Katy Christian Magazine family.”
