Do you want to be part of something great?

Marquette’s Lakeview Arena was recently recognized as the winner of Kraft Hockeyville USA for 2016. This competition took place over several months and included 3 rounds of online voting. During this time our local community rallied behind the rink, while gaining state and national support along the way. The support was overwhelming, with tens of thousands of people voting.

Throughout the period of October 1-4, 2016, Friends of Lakeview Arena (a 501c3 foundation) will be putting on a community celebration, culminating with an NHL preseason hockey game between the Buffalo Sabres and Carolina Hurricanes at Lakeview Arena on Tuesday October 4th. The Kickoff event for this 4 day celebration will be the Hockeyville 5K Run 4 Lakeview on Saturday, October 1, 2016. There will also be a 1 mile youth run.

The excitement surrounding this 4 day celebration will be tremendous. Social media, news and radio coverage will be huge in promotion and coverage of the events. The race start and finish celebration will take place at Lakeview Arena, with a live radio feed during the event. We are anticipating 500 participants, as well hundreds of spectators and volunteers. Currently, we are looking for sponsors to assist in putting on this great event. All proceeds from this event will go towards upgrades at Lakeview Arena.

Please help support Lakeview arena and hundreds of runners/walkers as they participate in this health promotion event!

For more information regarding sponsorship levels please contact me directly. Thank you for your consideration,

Mark Janofski,
Race Director
