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.

The in-person event in Las Vegas will be held on Thursday August 26, at 5:30 a.m. Participants will assemble outside of the Venetian Resort Hotel and run or walk a 5K. Biking activity in beautiful Red Rock Canyon is also available for anyone interested.

The AGS Conclave edition will be held on Sunday September 12, at the Sheraton Dallas Downtown, the host hotel for Conclave. Participants will assemble at 6:30 a.m. and run or walk a 5K and follow that with an event filled, opening day at Conclave.

“Rings of Strength is one of our largest and most popular events” said Debra Puzio, JFC Board Chair. “We weren’t able to hold in-person events last year and it’s exciting to bring them back to two locations this year. The virtual event held last year proved very popular and we’re thrilled to be able to offer it as an option for those who may not be attending market week in Las Vegas or have other commitments at that time. This year presents an opportunity that fits into everyone’s schedule.”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
