Sponsorship Opportunities

It’s our anniversary. It’s hard to believe the 2024 Trek with be our 10th Annual T-Bird Trek! Time flies when you are having fun and have awesome partnerships!

Whether your sponsorship ability is monetary, in-kind, volunteerism, or swag — we are grateful, and our students are thankful. Last year, the Trek netted nearly $9,700, which helps to support scholarships and alumni initiatives at Casper College. Plus, we had 336 participants, a new record for the T-Bird Trek.

The T-Bird Trek promises excellent exposure for our sponsors while raising money to help our students attain their educational and professional goals. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 307-268-2325 or ann.dalton@caspercollege.edu if you want additional information.

We hope to see you, your colleagues, and your company’s logo on the course.
