Kelly Brush ride raises $275,000 for SCI research and prevention

first_imgThe 5th annual Kelly Brush Century Ride drew 675 riders and raised $275,000 for spinal cord injury prevention and research on Saturday.The ride, which began and ended at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont, included 23 participants using hand cycles. The day was postcard perfect with clear blue skies and temperatures in the 70s. “We are absolutely thrilled to see such strong support for the foundation and our mission,” said Charlie Brush, Kelly Brush Foundation president. “Our thanks goes to each and every rider whose participation helps the Kelly Brush Foundation make a positive difference in the lives of those with SCI and raises the bar for ski racing safety.”The 100-mile ride raises money for improving ski racing safety, enhancing the quality of life for those with SCI through adaptive sports equipment grants, advancing scientific research on SCI and supporting the U.S. Adaptive Ski Team.The ride continues to grow each year. The number of participants grew by about 175 this year and fundraising increased by about 40 percent.For every $5,000 raised by a team or individual, the foundation donates adaptive sports equipment in the name of the team or individual who raised the money. In addition, funds raised support ski racing safety grants awarded to ski clubs and racing organizations across the country for safety netting to line race courses and safety gear for racers.The Kelly Brush Century Ride was started by the Middlebury College Ski Team as a way to raise money to buy an adaptive mono-ski for team member Kelly Brush, who was paralyzed as the result of a ski racing crash. Brush and her family later founded a non-profit, and the ride was opened to the public. On Saturday’s ride, participants rode distances of 28, 50 or 100 miles, with options for 65 and 85 mile loops.The Kelly Brush Century Ride is made possible thanks to the generosity of participants and sponsors including: VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations, Sugarbush Resort, Shearer Audi, Audi of America, KeyBank, Saatchi & Saatchi and Champlain Investment Partners and others.About the foundation: The Kelly Brush Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving ski racing safety, enhancing the quality of life for those with spinal cord injury(SCI) through providing adaptive sports equipment, advancing scientific research on SCI and supporting the U.S. Adaptive Ski Team. Kelly Brush, together with her family, started the foundation in 2006 after she sustained a severe spinal cord injury while racing in NCAA Div. 1 competition as a member of the Middlebury College Ski Team in Vermont. The Kelly Brush Foundation affirms Kelly’s ongoing commitment to live life on her own terms and better the lives of others living with SCI. www.kellybrushfoundation.org(link is external)BURLINGTON, Vermont (Sept. 14, 2010)last_img read more

Grand Slam of Darts: Jonny Clayton explains his decision to keep working full-time as he targets Grand Slam glory | Darts News

first_img“It is genuinely how I feel. I’ve got a young family and I want everything to be spot on before I make that decision. I think I need to win a major before that decision is made.”Having said that, if Clayton continues on his upward trajectory, he may have a decision to make sooner rather than later.After kicking off the year with a run to the last eight at the Masters, the 46-year-old has also progressed to the semi-finals at the UK Open and the European Championship, losing out to Price and Peter Wright respectively.He succumbed to Michael van Gerwen in his first televised final at the Players Championship Finals in 2017, yet he’s a more formidable proposition now, which augurs well in his pursuit of glory.“I’m knocking on the door a few times now, so hopefully my bit of luck will come through and it will be my time at the Grand Slam or the Worlds,” said Clayton. Jonny Clayton helped create history on Sunday, as he and Gerwyn Price clinched Wales’ maiden World Cup crown Clayton featured as a challenger in the 2020 Premier League back in March This presents the perfect opportunity for Clayton to capitalise on this momentum. He was devastated after succumbing 11-8 to Wright in last month’s European Championship semi-finals – a remarkable miscount at a crucial juncture proving expensive.Fortunately for ‘The Ferret’, his World Cup medal ensures that is a distant memory, and now the full-time plasterer is focused on raising his darting ceiling.“I let myself down there [European Championship] but I know I can play darts and lifting that trophy has got to give me confidence. It is my second trophy with the PDC.“Austria was my first and this is definitely the biggest trophy. Hopefully this is going to kick me on and the confidence is definitely there, it’s just putting it all together and carrying on.“There are massive competitions left – the Grand Slam, the World Championship and also the Players Championships. I’m looking forward to it.”Follow the action from the Grand Slam with all nine days covered on Sky Sports Arena from November 16-24. If you are out and about follow via our live blogs and @SkySportsDarts for regular updates. Having flourished in tandem last weekend, the pair will now lock horns at the Ricoh Arena after being pitted together in Group G of the cross-code event alongside Pro Tour winner Ryan Joyce and women’s world champion Mikuru Suzuki.Price is eyeing a third successive Grand Slam crown, yet for Clayton, he is targeting a major title that could aid his bid to become a full-time professional. Gerywn Price bigged up his partner Jonny Clayton in a great team effort to claim the World Cup for Wales. “When we used to play Rugby, the hooker usually listens to the scrum-halfs, but I think he’s a bit bigger than me so I won’t talk to Gezzy about the Grand Slam. I’ll keep that to myself!”Clayton offers a little chuckle as he discusses the prospect of dethroning his World Cup partner, but he’s got every reason to be buoyant following his exploits in Salzburg.The pair struggled to fulfil their potential in their previous two World Cup appearances as a partnership, but they performed magnificently in Austria to become the fourth nation to lift the coveted title.“I’m a very proud man. I think we both are to be honest. I don’t know if you’ve spoken to Gezzy [Price] but on the way back on the flight, we were both still buzzing. It was a great night,” he added.“We’re proud Welshman, so to represent your country and win the World Cup for the first time for your country, it’s a special time and I’m over the moon to be honest.” Clayton’s best major results – Advertisement – Live Grand Slam of Darts November 16, 2020, 1:00pmLive on “I still work. I’ve thought long and hard about do I give up to concentrate on darts?” Clayton told the Darts Show podcast.“I am afraid to take that step and I’m going to leave it as it is at the moment because if darts doesn’t go well, I’ve still got that income coming in. ‘The Ferret’ recently regained his place in the world’s top 16, but he remains the highest-ranked player to balance his darting commitments with a full-time job, as a plasterer for Carmarthenshire Council.Glen Durrant is a prime example of what can be achieved when taking the plunge. The three-time BDO world champion left his job as a housing manager after 30 years when he claimed a PDC Tour Card last January, and now he’s a Premier League champion.However, the pressure of competing against the world’s elite is heightened when you are solely reliant on your performances to earn a living, which Clayton concedes is the main factor behind his hesitation.- Advertisement – Masters quarter-final (2020) Players Championship Final (2017)

Brazil’s Bolsonaro awaits new test to show if he is COVID-19 free

first_imgBrazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Tuesday that he took another coronavirus test and the results were expected Wednesday as he hopes for a negative result two weeks since falling ill.”I did the test now. Early tomorrow the results will come out,” Bolsonaro told supporters, speaking at a distance across the moat in front of his official residence.”If God wants to give a negative, things will return to normal.” Outside of the United States, Brazil is the worst-hit country in the coronavirus pandemic. The presidents of both countries have played down the extent of the crisis.Bolsonaro is one of nearly 2.2 million people in Brazil who have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to health ministry statistics released on Tuesday.More than 81,000 people have died from COVID-19 in Brazil.Bolsonaro tested positive for the novel coronavirus on July 7 but by the next day said he was already feeling well. A follow-up test last week also came back positive for the virus.Bolsonaro has previously said he has taken the anti-malarial drug hydroxycloroquine – unproven for treating coronavirus but touted by US President Donald Trump – and credits the medication as the reason for his mild symptoms.He said that he will travel to the northeastern state of Piaui on Friday, presuming he is well.With the toll of the pandemic rising rapidly, Brazil is also a major center for testing potential vaccines for the virus. On Tuesday, human trials of a second vaccine began and the government approved trials of a third.Topics :last_img read more

Consider this…Of the 90 people who filled out a Sumner Newscow- Pig Shack Barbecue  “Pig and Cow” bracket to win $200, the winner was won by a 2-year-old!Cooper Norris, the son of Tim and Heather Norris, won the $200 contest for having the highest point total. We are guessing he may have had some help.Dan Monson finished second and will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Pig Shack. Irene Monson finished third and will receive a $25 gift certificate. Cooper had Kentucky winning it all over Florida. Of course, we now all know Connecticut beat Kentucky for all the marbles. But his Kentucky selection to the finals gave him 107 points.Dan Monson had Kentucky over Florida and that earned him 100 points and the only other contestant to reach triple figures. His wife, Irene, finished with 97 points. The Monsons will have a lot of ribs to eat – $75 worth with their combined winnings.Just for everyone’s information, not only did nobody have Connecticut to win the national championship, but nobody picked the Huskies to reach the Final Four or the Elite Eight and precious few of you had them in the Sweet 16 – selecting them to lose to Villanova.It was a great tournament, and a lot of fun. We look forward to the next contest. Sumner Newscow has already agreed to be a sponsor of the 2014 Kansas Wheat Festival Medallion Hunt. See you then.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
