Can you imagine promoting your own walk/run 5k in your area? What if you chose a charity to help and then attached your name to the entire event by promoting it? You would look like a business that really cares for their community.

I would think you might want to be in business a few years before you started something like this but hey, if you got the energy and the drive, why not look into doing something like this today!

I think it is a large project but a fantastic one.

What's your view?

All exhibitors and attendees of The Green Industry and Equipment Expo are welcome to participate. The entry fee is only $10, all of which will be donated to the WHAS Crusade for Children (www.whascrusade.org). Participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt and race bib.
