On Thursday, May 30, 2019, the 7th annual Rings of Strength event will kick-off at a new location, The Venetian Las Vegas, in conjunction with the move of the JCK Show. Participants can choose to walk, run or bike, and even attend a yoga class, all while raising funds for children in need.
The event will kick-off at 5:30 a.m. to avoid the heat of the day. Interested participants register and create their own fundraising site. They can send their own, unique URL to friends, families and co-workers, asking for their support. Thanks to some generous sponsors, all the funds raised by the participants go directly to help children in need.
The “Rings of Strength Tour” name originates from the story of Maggie and Odie – two beautiful children, diagnosed with cancer, who formed a deep bond that was illustrated by a ring of strength that Maggie gave to Odie during his fight for life.
Participants can choose to register as individuals or organize a team. When you register, you create your own unique URL that you can send to all your friends and contacts to ask them to support your participation. If you want to set up a team, register yourself first.
Since 2013, more than $ 300,000 has been raised by the event participants that went to support children in need.
