Be Our Hero

Help us change lives

Dear Future Sponsor,  


Today’s students face negative pressures. As a result, they risk making life-altering decisions that leave a devastating impact on their future. For more than a decade, IRON Lives, Inc. has been breaking the cycle of negativity through proven research-based programs that take students from striving to thriving. 


IRON Lives, Inc. has been on this mission since 2009. Over the past 12 years, IRON has provided over $10,000 in scholarship funds for students. Currently, in Amherst County and Lynchburg, over 300 male and female students are involved in our 7 programs. We host over 30 positive events a year for our students. These events enable the students to gain, as well as improve upon, various self-empowering skills, such as: team-building, problem-solving, leadership, effective communication, and many other confidence-building skills necessary for a successful, enriching life. We are dependent entirely upon the resources and financial support of corporations and private sponsors to fund all of our activities and events. These include, but are not limited to: college trips, dress for success workshops, mock interviews, resume workshops, as well as a Gentleman’s Ball and other life-enhancing events that appeal to our future leaders.

We would like to ask that you consider becoming one of the sponsors for our 11th Annual IRON 5K Run/Walk and Bacon Festival on April 17, 2022. Being a sponsor allows you to support an organization that serves over 300 youth in Central Virginia, which shows the community your commitment to our future.  In addition, you will partner with IRON Lives as an investor in the next generation of leaders.  With your reputation in the community, we believe you are an ideal partner for us and our youth.


We have some special sponsorship opportunities available this year:

  • Medal Sponsor: A donation of $1,400 will support the purchase of our race medals, which will include the name of your organization or business on the back.

  • T-Shirt Sponsor: A donation of $3,000 will support the purchase of our race shirts, which will include the name of your organization or business on the back.

  • Nonprofit Sponsor: Nonprofits may be listed as a sponsor with no financial contribution by committing to having 10 organization members (staff, board members, etc.) participate in the IRON 5K. All registrations must be completed by February 1 to be listed as a sponsor.
