LDI 5K Fun Run Benefits Behind the Scenes

PLSN Staff • News • December 23, 2019

 

LAS VEGAS – LDI hosted its first 5k Fun Run to benefit the Behind the Scenes charity on the opening morning of the recent LDI Show in Las Vegas. An intrepid group of industry members showed up at 6am to participate and show their support for their colleagues in need.

More details from BTS (www.behindthescenescharity.org):

“We were so thrilled to host the first annual LDI 5K Fun Run to benefit Behind the Scenes.” says Marian Sandberg, content director for LD/LDI and co-chair of the event. “It was a super-success for year one, drawing more than 60 runners. Special thanks to everyone who turned up to run, plus everyone who volunteered, as well as those who just dug deep to donate a little extra something to this incredibly worth cause. Shout out to Philip Norfolk and Ambersphere Solutions, our beer and donuts sponsor, who also ran and wrangled some unsuspecting folks to join in. It turns out people will participate in healthy activities in Las Vegas at 6am!”

The run brought in over $2600 in registration fees and, combined with donations made during the LDI registration process and LDI’s match of those donations, a check was presented to Behind the Scenes for $4,409.

“We were amazed at the number of people who turned up so early to participate,” said Behind the Scenes Executive Director, Lori Rubinstein. “Our thanks to all the runners, the volunteers, Philip Norfolk and Ambersphere Solutions for their sponsorship, and especially to Marian Sandberg and her team for all their hard work organizing the event. We hope to see all of you and many more at the second annual run!”
