The Goodwill Hose Company was formed in 1901 by a group of young men called pinfeathers. There first piece of equipment was a hose cart. Today Goodwill Hose Company houses two Pumpers and is one of three Fire Companies in the Borough of Belmar. They have raised money through the years with various fundraisers. These fundraisers have helped defray some of the operating costs of the Fire Company.
Since 2002, the Belmar Five Mile run remembers long-time Belmar resident, Johnny Cobb, who passed away in 2001. In addition to being an originator of the race, he had a 25-year career in the Belmar Police Department, and was a graduate and supporter of the St Rose School, and promoted local sports all of his life. Since dedicating the race to John Cobb, our goal is to annually have a portion of race proceeds go towards a scholarship at St. Rose High School in memory of Johnny Cobb.
We are committed to presenting a quality road race, and are determined to instill a sense of pride for the race among the hundreds of volunteers who each year make the race a reality, making this race the unique event it is. With your help, we have provided the same quality event the participants have come to expect.
Our committee is busy preparing for this event. Our overall success relies on contributions from sponsors like you. The Goodwill Fire Co. and the Belmar Five Race Committee would be grateful if you would consider supporting this year's event. As a business leader in our community, I hope you will want your company to be part of this important and highly regarded event. Support opportunities range from $200 to $5,000 and the benefits to your company or organization are explained on the enclosed Sponsorship Opportunities list. Each category guarantees your company visibility to the thousands of participants, making you a vital community partner in supporting the Goodwill Hose Fire Company. For example, a $500 contribution will assure that your company’s name will be printed on the approximately 3,000 Official Belmar Five race shirts worn by participants and your logo on our registration site. You may also want to consider reserving a space at our Race Expo in Silver Lake Park on race day for a $200 fee or equivalent product value.
