Courage is not the absence of fear; courage is acting in spite of fear. When we consider courage, firefighters, police officers, pilots, and military personnel come to mind. But courage isn't reserved for a select group of leaders. Opportunities to take courage rise every day in many forms, and it's up to us to seize those moments in our leadership.

At Leadercast Women Lewisville-Clemmons, an all-female lineup of nine world-renowned experts, as well as influencers from around our state, will share their inspirational stories of courage and how to be daring in leadership. We're also excited to announce "Hollywood's Body Language Expert" Blanca Cobb will be our emcee and special guest speaker.

Simulcast LIVE from Atlanta, you'll experience an inclusive leadership event close to home. Take one day from your workplace to learn from world-respected leadership experts. You'll walk away inspired with the tools you need to take courage in your daily life, whether in the workplace or at home.

2019 Bark For Life of Guilford County

Cancer has affected nearly all of us in some way, either personally or through the struggle of a loved one. When you and your loyal canine companion get involved with the American Cancer Society Bark For Life, you are helping save lives!

Bark For Life is a dog walk event that gives dog owners (and the dogs that love them!) an opportunity to come together to raise funds to help the American Cancer Society save lives and create a world with less cancer. Every dollar you raise will help the American Cancer Society do the most for everyone in every community touched by cancer including those who are currently dealing with a cancer diagnosis, those who may face a diagnosis in the future, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention.

This year's Bark For Life of Guilford County will be on Saturday, October 19, 2019, at Country Park in Greensboro, NC. Join us for an unforgettable event where we’ll come together with other canine owners to help save more lives from cancer!

Pre-Registration fee for this year's event is $20 for one dog, or $30 for two dogs, which includes an event t-shirt for you and bandana(s) for your dog(s) (along with goody bags for the first 100 canine registrations). Day-Of Registration will be $25 per dog. (Please note that pre-registration is required to guarantee receipt of an event t-shirt and bandana.)

Don't have a dog? That's okay! You are still welcome to come out and enjoy the festivities with us! We have a Human Only registration option as well (Pre-Registration is $10; Day-Of Registration will be $15) which still includes an awesome event t-shirt for you! Plus, if you come out and join us you just might find a furry, four-legged companion to take home with you since we'll have several local rescue organizations there along with dogs currently available for adoption.

Day-of registration will begin at 10:00 AM and the event itself will kick-off at 11:00 AM. It will be a day full of fun, vendors, raffles, silent auction, contests, and most importantly, a day full of celebration for our four-legged friends that provide such amazing companionship to us!

Please visit our event website to sign up and find out more about plans for this year's event at www.relayforlife.org/barkguilfordnc

We want to recognize the extraordinary people among us who are local heroes.

 

To nominate a local hero, the entrant should write an essay of 600 words introducing us to the person you consider a local hero. Explain why the individual should be recognized for his or her deeds.

Pediatric Stroke Charity Event

The 2nd Annual Stand with Bentley, Stroke Charity Event

Date: November 3rd, 2019

Time: 1PM-7PM

Location: The Barn at Heritage Farm
152 Heritage Farm Ln, Dobson, NC 27017

On January 5, 2017, Nathan and I were able to meet one of the sweetest blessing we could ever ask for and that was our son Bentley. Just one day later, we found out that Bentley had suffered from a stroke at birth causing seizures and having extensive brain damage. We spoke with many doctors and were prepared for what might come from this such as weakness and movement issues on his left side, vision impairment, possible motor and development delays, and more. We met monthly with nurses and doctors, only for them to tell us that Bentley was developing perfectly. He is our miracle baby and has a true testimony to share with the world. Bentley has since been discharged and continues to show no signs of damage.

PURE BASKETBALL TOY DRIVE

Christmas time is approaching fast and this year Pure Basketball is hosting its first Toy Drive to help families that are in need for the holidays because every child deserves to wake up Christmas morning to at least a little something. Pure Basketball is a youth basketball program from Albemarle N.C. where we currently have 3 teams that travel the state and play in tournaments against other basketball programs from all over the state and some tournaments from all over the country. Our kids in the program range from high school down to 5th grade and we hope to expand  in the future. We are blessed to have a great support system around the program and hope to grow even bigger over the next few years. So we are using our platform to help those kids out this year and give back to the community since it has been so great to us. We will be hosting a drop off event December 1st at B.R.S inc in Richfield  NC where we will be accepting toys to donate. You can bring in new unwrapped toys for all ages that day. We will also will be selling food the day of the drop off for any one who comes to join us. Also if anyone knows a family personally that may be experience hard times and needs a little help for Christmas please let us know and we will personally try to help that family out as well with toys from the toy drive. So let’s all get together and help out the less fortunate this holiday season and come together as a community and make some kids Christmas a unforgettable one!!!! so everyone come out and get in the Christmas spirit and listen to Christmas music and help out our community...If you have any questions or would like to donate but can’t make event we can arrange a pick up please call 704-984-0042 or 704-792-8263 for more information!
