Race for the Ring- A Huge Success!

Roger’s Jewelry Company’s Race for the Ring event held last Saturday at Raley Field was a huge success! From the beautiful weather to all of the enthusiasm from our event participants we could not have asked for a better day.

Mayor Kevin Johnson kicked off the event with a text message clue and before we knew it, hundreds of bicycling couples were headed downtown to hunt for clues that could bring them great prizes provided by Rogers Jewelry Company. The event culminated with food and beverage, silent auction and live music. Race for the Ring, much like our Run to Feed the Hungry, is about community building. An opportunity for folks to come together for a common purpose; a recognition that our organization provides quality programming for the residents of Sacramento and these efforts make Sacramento a healthier and better place to live. What a great thing to celebrate!

The people that reach out to our organization for help are provided opportunities to work towards improving their situation and the result of their hard work will pay off in the form of employment, improved education and healthier lifestyles. Funding from Race for the Ring will go directly into helping us achieve this goal. We would like to thank all of our wonderful sponsors such as Rogers Jewelry Company, Panera Bread, Five Star Bank, American Building Supply, SureWest Foundation, Mercy, California Family Fitness and Cornerstone Personal Fitness . Special thanks goes out to Roger’s Jewelry Company and the Mayor’s Office. Thank you to everyone for your continued confidence and support.
