Spinx Run Fest

Participants in this year's Spinx Run Fest, an annual road race in Greenville, South Carolina, will have the opportunity to become members of Team Joslin.

As members of the team, participants are encouraged to implement a fundraising element into their training that will go towards the Joslin Diabetes Center's High Hopes Fund. In order to further promote fundraising efforts, Joslin has created prize tiers that will reward team members. The top prize is a trip for two to Boston, a bib in the 2010 Boston Marathon and tickets to a Boston Red Sox game. 

The Joslin Diabetes Center is the most renowned diabetes research institute in the country, and their scope has an international impact. Arluck Promotions identified an opportunity to spread Joslin's push towards a cure to Greenville when we took notice of the following:

  • Team Joslin captain Jay Hewitt lives and trains in Greenville, South Carolina
  • South Carolina has the third highest prevalence of diabetes among states in the U.S.
  • The Greenville Drive baseball team is the minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox
  • Both Joslin and Spinx Run Fest passionately promote a healthy lifestyle
