For the second year in a row, Ascension Seton will be the title sponsor of the Austin Marathon in Texas.
Additionally, Ascension Seton will be the Official Medical Provider for the event. The Ascension Seton Austin Marathon presented by Under Armour will take place on February 16, 2020.
“Ascension Seton is excited to return as the title sponsor and Official Medical Provider for the Austin Marathon,” said Adam Bauman, Vice President of Business Development, Ascension Seton. “The Austin Marathon reflects the community’s commitment to be an active and vibrant city, and through our partnership with High Five Events and friends of the Austin community, we are committed to promote, support and facilitate activities for a healthy lifestyle.”
As the Official Medical Provider, Ascension Seton doctors and nurses will staff the finish line medical tent and work with Travis County Emergency Medical Services on the course. During race weekend, Team Ascension Seton will participate in all events, volunteer time, and have a major presence at the event’s Health and Fitness Expo. Outside of race weekend, the presence of Ascension Seton caregivers will be felt as they get involved with local running clubs and attend community runs. Ascension Seton will raise funds and spread awareness as an Official Austin Gives Miles charity.
“It’s been tremendous to watch this partnership grow and see our continued positive impact on the running community,” said Jack Murray, co-owner of High Five Events. "Ascension Seton’s involvement has taken the Austin Marathon to another level, and we’re pumped to continue supporting Central Texas and the running community.”
