SPONSOR THE RACE!
Becoming an Official Sponsor of the 2022 Snowball 5K/1K offers companies a fun opportunity to help raise funds for the Morgan’s Wonderland Mission of Inclusion. Nonprofit Morgan’s Wonderland is the world’s first theme park designed with individuals living with disabilities in mind and built for all abilities. The success of Morgan’s Wonderland led to the addition of Ultra-Accessible™ Morgan’s Inspiration Island in 2017. While we recognize our one-of-a-kind features, it’s the outcome of priceless memories and belonging that we are most proud of. Anyone with a special need is admitted for free. The Morgan’s Wonderland “Family” expanded in 2020 with Morgan’s Wonderland Sports, a 3-acre complex offering fitness, competition, and fun. It is the headquarters for adaptive, recreational, and competitive programming, such as STRAPS (South Texas Regional Adaptive and Para Sports). There are many ways companies and businesses can join our Snowball 5K/1K Run, Walk, Roll, and Stroll, including sponsorship, corporate teams, in-kind donations, matching gifts, donated media, and more. We hope you will consider creating a company team! Please contact Inclusion@MorgansWonderland.com for any questions or more ways you can get involved.

FUNDRAISE!
Help us reach our goal by inviting friends and family to get involved as virtual racers or encourage them to support your team. Share a personal story of why you believe in the mission of inclusion on social media by using the hashtag #Snowball5K!
