Austin, TX — The 46th annual Statesman Capitol 10,000, presented by Baylor Scott & White Health and scheduled for Sunday, April 16, 2023, is proud to announce Greater Texas Credit Union as the new sponsor for 2023 runner photos.
“We are pleased to welcome Greater Texas Credit Union as the returning 2023 official financial partner and the new sponsor for Cap10K runner photos,” said Jeff Simecek, Statesman Cap10K race director. As our race participants work their way through the Cap10K course, our photographers will be along the route to capture their biggest smile. Through this partnership, Greater Texas Credit Union will ensure that each person receives a free post-race photo(s) to share with family, friends and colleagues.”
“And, like the Cap10K, Greater Texas Credit Union has deep Texas roots. Support of community efforts is an integral part of both our core missions. We are proud to work with a team dedicated to making a difference in our Central Texas community by supporting The Mike & Sherry Project, our 2023 race beneficiary.”
“We are elated to be part of the Statesman Cap10K as the official financial sponsor,” said Howard Baker, President and CEO of Greater Texas Credit Union. “This is the iconic running event in Austin and a family affair for so many people. We are so thrilled to be part of the memory making that happens at the Cap10K, and that’s why we will provide each runner a free professional photo of that special moment when they cross the finish line.”
Baker added, “Being a Cap10K sponsor also allows us to help support this year’s race beneficiary, the Mike & Sherry Project and the integral mental health services it provides to workers in the restaurant, bar and hospitality industry.”
The 2023 Statesman Cap10K benefits The Mike & Sherry Project. In addition to one dollar from every Cap10K registration going to the local nonprofit organization, race participants can also choose to make an additional donation when registering for 2023, which the Statesman will match up to $10,000. Registration is currently open on Cap10K.com.
