Renegade Racing and Troutman Sanders Announce Partnership

August 27, 2012

International law firm Troutman Sanders is the title sponsor of the 2012 Renegade Santa Run

Troutman Sanders, an international law firm, is partnering with Renegade Racing as the title sponsor of the Santa Run, an annual holiday running event in Irvine, CA. The 2012 Troutman Sanders Renegade Santa Run will take place on December 15th. The event benefits the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF), a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting athletes with physical disabilities.

“Troutman Sanders is thrilled to be the title sponsor of this event and will donate the proceeds from their fundraising efforts to CAF. CAF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. While Orange County is a Mecca for running and endurance sports, the size is matched only by the spirit of public service and support of worthy causes by the people who live and work here. It’s our honor to support CAF and to be part of this great community,” said Marty Taylor, Partner at the law firm of Troutman Sanders.

“It is our mission at CAF to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles,” said Torrie Tinley, CAF’s Development Manager. “This would not be possible without the help of our supporters such as Renegade Racing and Troutman Sanders. We are grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness and funds through the 2012 Troutman Sanders Renegade Santa Run! This event will not only be fun and festive, it will also allow participants to be a part of something greater this holiday season by helping to give the gift of freedom and sport to challenged athletes around the world.”

“People want to do good and feel connected to community, especially during the holidays, and in support a worthy cause like CAF.  The Troutman Sanders Renegade Santa Run is a great way to do that, while having fun and enjoying physical fitness during the busy holiday season,” said Jonathan Pauley, Race Director.
