The 2013 NASC Sports Symposium is around the corner and I hope everybody is getting ready for this event and all the events of your own upcoming this spring. I would like to have everyone just take a quick minute and try to get involved in a worthy cause and take the opportunity to showcase your area and events! After 2012 Hartford, I was looking to get more involved in NASC and contacted the national office and showed my interest in the Sport Legacy Committee and am very excited in our committee’s goals for this year’s symposium.
“Run. Louisville, Run” is the 2013 Beneficiary for the Sports Legacy fund. This program challenges youth ages 12-18, to train and complete the Triple crown of racing , a 10- mile race held in the Spring. This is a great opportunity for every member to get involved in this cause but more important to “show-off” something special or unique about your city, event or region.
Our committee is looking for you to donate an item or items from your city or event that best represents your area and can show all the other members what you’re doing for today’s sporting events around the country. If unable to donate, please pass the world around to all your colleagues about bidding on items at this year’s symposium or purchasing raffle tickets to win other great prizes.
I really think NASC and all its doing for our membership and the entire sports world is moving in the right direction and I hope you will consider donating to NASC Sports Legacy Fund. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to reach out to the membership and I look forward to seeing you in Louisville.
