BECOME A WATERMELON 5K SPONSOR

Go the extra mile for CIAF


All proceeds from the Watermelon 5K race will go directly to CIAF and our efforts to help more people hear.

We are always looking for new ways to ramp up our efforts!  In 2017 we will be taking District 23, our retail fashion shop that sells on-trend women's clothing, accessories, and gifts, on the road by creating a mobile boutique.  Our fashion truck will allow us to reach more of our supporters and promote CIAF’s Hearing Health campaign.
