Bike, run or walk to help children in need
Jewelers for Children (JFC) will hold the fourth installment of the very popular Rings of Strength on Thursday, June 2 in Las Vegas. Start time will be at 5:30 a.m. outside the tour bus entrance at the Mandalay Bay Resort Casino. Participants will be able to choose between a 5K walk or run, a 50K challenging bike ride in the foothills of Red Rock Canyon or a shorter 15K route.
To date, the event has raised over $180,000 to help children in need.
Structured so that participants can complete the course and have sufficient time to prepare for a day of work at the Las Vegas market week events, the activities are geared towards folks completing what they are comfortable with, in the time that they have available. There is also a yoga class for interested participants that will begin at 9:30 a.m.
“The Rings of Strength really is an event for everybody,” said Rebecca Foerster, Executive Vice President Strategic Planning and Marketing at Leo Schachter Diamonds, and a JFC board member. “It’s been so gratifying to see how it has grown over the past four years with so many folks returning and new folks joining every year. The event has a real sense of camaraderie and provides an outlet for folks who have a hectic day during a busy week.”
