Brookhill Steeplechase GlaxoSmithKline Continues Tradition of Sponsoring The Brookhill Steeplechase in 2001

Raleigh – Continuing their long tradition of community support, GlaxoSmithKline agreed to help sponsor the Brookhill Steeplechase for the ninth year in a row.

GlaxoSmithKline joins sponsors Time Warner Cable, RTCI, Spectator, and Killer Creative Group. The Johnston County Visitor's Bureau has also provided support by approving a grant. "We are excited about the progress we've made with our sponsor selection and delighted to have some new organizations join us this year," states Co-chair Karey Martin. “The Raleigh Jaycees and the Brookhill Steeplechase are honored that GlaxoSmithKline is continuing their sponsorship of this event,” according to Co-chair Glenn Seitchek, “GSK has sponsored us every year since the beginning of the Brookhill Steeplechase nine years ago and we are honored and pleased to accept their continued support.”

The Brookhill Steeplechase is a horse race, sanctioned by the National Steeplechase Association, owned and operated by the Raleigh Junior Chamber of Commerce, the Raleigh Jaycees. Founded in 1993, the Brookhill Steeplechase offers enthusiasts from across the Research Triangle region a chance to witness professional jockeys compete for purses exceeding $40,000. Proceeds from this unique event help fund many of the more than 120 projects run by the Raleigh Jaycees each year, including Goodfellows, the Turkey Shoot at the NC State Fair, numerous child literacy and mentorship programs, professional and personal training programs and cooperative efforts with the Jaycee Burn Center and the Boys’ Home of North Carolina.
