The City of Duluth and James Lowe (Jay) would like to invite you to take part in an exciting opportunity that will benefit the health and wellness of our children and residence Gwinnett County. Our goal is to capitalize on the speed, adrenaline and excitement of professional cycling and use it as a platform from which to promote and encourage family fitness, health, and wellness. Our children are our first priority - healthy lifestyles begin with our children. We invite you to take a moment to review the following proposal and sincerely hope that you will become a Sponsor for this exciting and impactful event.
The Event: The Georgia Cup - Duluth Twilight Pro Invitational Criterium
On August 2, 2014, the 1st Annual Georgia Cup Twilight Duluth was launched in Downtown Duluth. Spectators descended upon the streets of DOWNTOWN DULUTH for a distinctly American brand of bike racing. The Criterium race is not a meandering country wide tour. It is a cycling's short‐fast‐adrenaline filled answer to Nascar‐ a 45 minute circuit race around a ¾ mile course that makes fans as much a part of the action as the riders. This is not cycling you watch – its cycling you feel, and we want you to be a part of it!
The Georgia Cup Duluth Twilight Pro Criterium (Georgia Cup) is more than a professional cycling race. It is a festival of fitness, health, and wellness to promote preventative health. During the races, families will benefit from entertainment and fun, free family programming that will help combat the health issues like diabetes and heart disease that affect a disproportionately high percentage of residents in Metro-Atlanta.
