When I look back at my life I realize what good fortune I have had. I have only broken one bone, my arm. I have sliced and diced various parts of my body through the years (is it good or bad that the ER docs know your name?) and had all the “standard” illnesses, without any long term ill effects (despite what my wife says). I have dodged a few bullets in my day. Some of this I attribute to living a pretty healthy lifestyle; some is just good genes and most is just dumb luck. Along the way I met an amazing woman who liked me enough to marry me and we started a business together. All in all life is good.
But there comes a time when you have to give back or pay forward some of the “good luck” you have been the recipient of. We try to help people with our personal time, with business information we have garnered, we donate blood and we donate to various causes.
The one thing I think people should really look into is mentoring others. It’s not about showing off how good you are or how well off you are it’s about helping people and, call me selfish that makes me feel good.
One of our favorite causes is the fight against Muscular Sclerosis. We participate in the MS Bike Rides, which we have been doing for about 9 years. We have friends and family who have been stricken with this debilitating disease, so we ride for them in hopes that, one day, a cure can be found.
I am asking you to help us; either join our bicycling team, Team Slugfish
or with a tax deductible donation to our ride.
We will be hosting a rest stop for the Sunday ride at the distillery. Please come visit and cheer on the riders. We will be open from 8am to 5pm on Sunday, August 2nd
Thank you for your support and we will see you on the road August 1st and 2nd.
