(PRESS RELEASE) Jewelers for Children has announced that it will be holding a virtual edition of its popular Rings of Strength event during the upcoming virtual JCK Show Aug. 11-14. Participants will be able to sign up and raise funds to help children in need, while connecting through activity. JFC is working with Charity Footprints, the leading virtual platform for non-profits.

During the four-day event, participants can choose any activity, anywhere they are, and be part of the whole. They can run or walk the traditional 5K or ride their bikes any distance they choose. They’ll also be able to walk their dog, mow the lawn, take a morning stroll; anything! The option to link wearable trackers and smart watches to the site will allow for all activity to be counted towards the goal of 6 million steps over the four day event.

No minimum level of activity is required. Folks can do whatever they’re comfortable with for as long as they choose. Everyone will have the ability to invite their friends, families and co-workers to support their efforts and sponsor their activities to help kids who need it the most.

“Rings of Strength is one of our largest and most popular events” said Debra Puzio, JFC Board Chair. “While we’re not able to gather together in person this year, we’ll be able to connect through activity wherever we are, doing whatever makes us happy. The new site allows for all participants to share their activity and progress, including photos, with everyone else. A virtual event also exponentially expands the potential participants as anyone can now join in without having to attend a singular event in one location. With four days in which to participate, the event can fit into everyone’s schedule.”

Anyone interested in participating can visit www.ringsofstrength.org and sign up. All participants will be asked to link their activities during the virtual JCK Show Aug. 11-14.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
