The Profit Hunters BizLeadership 2012 Conference is a great opportunity to bring attention (and donations!) to a great organization. The conference goal is to raise $50,000 to the Wounded Warriors Project!!
From Tony Di Rico, president of Profit Hunters International:
“I, my family, Profit Hunters members and friends have been so blessed and it pains me to see the sacrifices the brave men and women are making to keep us safe, therefore I’m planning on having a “silent auction” during the conference with all the proceeds going to Wounded Warriors Project…every penny!!! Your support to wounded warriors is the only way for us to collectively reach our $50,000 goal.”

Was so busy last month with the Burning River that I forgot to include a link to my profile in the July 2012 Western Reserve Trail Running newsletter.
It’s the Sixth Annual Green Jewel 50K. It takes place on March 2, 2013 and registration is now open. Because of the threat(?) of salamander migration interfering with the race the last couple of years, we’ve moved the start back to 9:00 AM. That way, you can sleep in, the salamanders can go to sleep and everyone’s happy.
The Sixth Annual Burning River 100 is history. Dave James and Connie Gardner both defended their crowns and we had a record number of entrants (360), starters (317) and finishers (199).
The weather was ideal (high of 80F) and the trail conditions were as good as you could get.
We’ve more than doubled our numbers since Year 1 in 2007. So next year’s race will feature a number of course changes, brought about my the growth of the event.

There’s a couple fixes remaining, but the new Brecksville Chamber site I’ve designed for the Chamber of Commerce is now online at BrecksvilleChamber.com.
