Q1: What is one thing about South Shore Race Management that you would like your fellow Presidents' Circle members to know?
Our primary goal for every event is to raise money for local charities and individuals while also supporting local businesses. We give locally and spend locally whenever possible.
Q2. Why is supporting South Shore Health so important to you and your company?
Because our company promotes healthy living, families and lifestyles, supporting South Shore Health and their efforts to keep communities healthy is part of who we are and why we do this work.
Q3. What is your belief in maintaining strong community values and how does that philosophy influence your business?
The individuals and organizations we work with ask us for help due to a need. The need may be for their group, their family or their friends. Sometimes it’s a larger group such as helping support food pantries at the holidays, or for an individual who is battling cancer. It’s amazing to watch a community come together to help someone else. Large groups of people working together builds a stronger community.
