Helping the local community ultimately helps you

We value our local community

Our local community is very important to us and we offer support to a variety of causes on a regular basis.

At Snap Geelong we recently sponsored the Rotary Family Fun Run on the Bellarine Rail Trail. We've found the benefits of being involved with such events to extend beyond the sponsorship package. This is the second year we've sponsored the Fun Run, and not only do we get good brand exposure as well as helping a very worthwhile local cause (the event beneficiary is Kids Plus, a local Children's therapy service), it's also a great day out for our whole family.

Adults run 17km along the Rail Trail to try and beat the steam train, while the kids compete in a range of age group races. On the day we had two runners representing Snap Geelong; 5 year old Alex and 3 year old Sofia, who both ran in their age group categories. Snap Geelong owners Alvaro and Libby were proudly cheering them on from the sidelines!

As part of our sponsorship we produced the event website as well as several print collateral items. An unexpected side effect of the sponsorship is that we have picked up additional jobs from the Club as well as the event beneficiary throughout the year, which is great.

We chose to support this charity event because we feel we have a great responsibility to give back to our local community and it's a  really fun way for our family to get involved! We're really thrilled that our contribution has helped raise around $25,000 for the Kids Plus foundation.
