Nebraska Soccer Charities 5k Run Series

2018 NSC 5K ECNL Fundraiser

This year Nebraska Soccer Charities will be hosting their 5K run at the Speedway Village in Lincoln. The run is scheduled for Tuesday, September 11 at 5:30PM.  This run is an optional event for those looking for opportunities to raise money for their $100 NSC fundraising commitment (for those who chose not to buy out on signing day).  

For those that have heard, NSC also hosts a ECNL girls specific 5K run here in Omaha. This run is limited to the ECNL players only as their fundraising commitment is greater than non ECNL players. With that, more runners are generally involved as all ECNL players are required to attend the run and most bring 2-3 runners with them to cover the fundraising requirements. This leads to a lot of runners, and Chalco does not have the space to facilitate such a large group of runners. Thus all non ECNL runners are asked to use the Lincoln 5K as their way of raising the $100 requirement if so desired.  

Below you will find instructions on the fundraising protocol. You will also find the NSC Lincoln 5K registration form attached to this email. This can be used to distribute to both individuals and businesses who may be interested in either sponsoring you for the event or interested in running themselves.

All families who chose to not buy out of fundraising at Signing Day but instead are looking to participate in the NSC Lincoln 5K need to raise $100 through runner participation donations, sponsor donations, etc. Remember that it is a $100 per family donation so for families with multiple kids participating in the club, they only need to cover the $100 fee.  

All donation checks need to be made payable to Nebraska Soccer Charities and NOT EBA/EGA. Any donation of $25 or more will be eligible for a letter of donation from NSC. No cash donations will be eligible for a letter of donation regardless of it's amount. All donations need to have the players name on the memo line of the check for administrative purposes. 

Donations will be collected on site the day of the race. Please see the attached flyer for race details as well as the waiver you must sign and return.
