2018 Major Collaborators



World Health Run is not possible without a strong conglomerate of Major Collaborative Partners (MCP). Our MCP's have representation in our Advisory Group, help identify potential major sponsors, and bolster the event by encouraging individuals and chapters of their organization to become involved. World Health Run currently has six MCP’s—but we need all the help we can get to create health equity. Join us as a Major Collaborative Partner.
