There are up front costs to putting on any fundraising event and Yaşam İçin Yarış is no exception.

Sponsoring an event gives local businesses an opportunity to give something back to their community.

Today the Yaşam İçin Yarış team wanted to take some time to say a heartfelt thank you to the sponsors of Yaşam İçin Yarış 2018.

Yacht Classic Hotel

The Yacht Classic Hotel was our main sponsor this year and you will have seen their logo emblazoned on the back of the T-shirts.

Located off the beaten track, close to (but far enough away from) the vibrant seaside towns of Fethiye & Oludeniz, Yakamoz Hotel is the perfect place to unwind & enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in an idyllic traditional hotel where the atmosphere is relaxed and service is offered with a smile.

Spectrum Turkey, Dalyan

Another Bronze sponsor for the second year was Spectrum Turkey. As well as being a sponsor, owners, Joanne and Tom Sparrow, have supported members of Team Dalyan in signing up individual sponsors.

Villa Cabrece (SPECTRUM TURKEY) is a dedicated healing place, a venue created for like-minded people who want a specialist group holiday, or a truly magical ‘villa’ to share with family and friends; for those who want something that little bit different, something exclusive and unique that they can share together to create heart warming happy memories, to enjoy the sunshine, fun and laughter, love and much joy.
