Cimarron Telephone has sponsored the “Cim-Tel Classic 5K” for 13 years with the proceeds benefitting the local schools in its service area. The Cleveland High School is the host and the community involvement is incredible, which makes giving back to the communities we serve very gratifying. The schools that benefits are: Cleveland, Mannford, Keystone, Prue, Woodland, Pawnee, and Jennings. This year the run is August 22.
The run is a fun environment that raises funds for all schools involved. Corporate Sponsorships that directly benefit the schools in our area are part of the “giveback to the community” program. Cim-Tel Classic invites its vendors to participate financially and by coming out to get to know the customers we serve. Anspire a recruiting and staffing partner provides free food every year. Anspire and sponsor Beacon Telecommunication Advisors will meet and greet many of the runners. Sponsorship come in as far as California from Calix a long term sponsor and a major vendor for Cimtel. Other major corporate sponsors are Accedian, The Holmes Organization, KPowerNet, (a network Partner), Archer Cleaners from Muskogee, Conner & Winters, The Mannford Reporter, Cinnamon Mueller from Chicago, Illinois a long term sponsor and participant in the race, Kempton Group, Neo Nova from North Carolina, iSpeed Technologies, ESPN and Disney, Cyan Networks, and FOX Sports.
We have great local representation too. Our local sponsors include In N Out, American Heritage Bank, and Phelps Market just to name a few. We gather items from local businesses to add to our run bags as well. This year some of the items we have are menus with 20 percent off at Nourish Drink Café in Tulsa, Free snow cone coupons from Harper’s Hut Shaved Ice, and a free day swimming pass at the Mannford Activity Center.
We really appreciate the community involvement and the opportunity to give back to our schools. We hope to see you at the run August 22 at Cleveland High School. The race starts at 8am and the entry fee is $25. At 6:30 a.m. runners who have not already done so can register and collect their race packets. After the race, an award ceremony and medal presentation takes place. You can find entry forms at CimTel or at
