Jewelers For Children To Hold Fifth Annual Rings Of StrengthApril 25, 17
(IDEX Online) – The fifth edition of the Jewelers for Children Rings of Strength event will be held on June 4 at Mandalay Bay Resort Casino in Las Vegas.
The event includes options for a 5K walk or run, a 50K challenging bike ride in the scenic foothills of Red Rock Valley, or a street level 10K bike ride. Sponsors have lined up for this year’s event and participants are well underway in fundraising to support children in need, the organizers said.
The event will kick-off at 5.30 a.m. to avoid the heat of the day. Rest stops along the route will ensure that everyone stays hydrated and energized to help raise funds for children in need.
Participants can visit www.ringsofstrength.org to sign up.
JCK Events is the major event sponsor, while JIS Exchange, Ashi Diamonds, Freeman and CMAC have also signed on.
