Triangle's First and Only Free Outdoor Dance Festiva

An outdoor dance festival debuting on Sept. 30, 2017, in Wake Forest is the first of its kind in the greater Triangle area. The Wake Forest Dance Festival is a free, family-friendly, daylong event from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. featuring professional dancers at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road, Wake Forest.

The inaugural event is presented by Wake Forest Arts in partnership with the Town of Wake Forest and will bring a day of dance to the Triangle in an outdoor setting. The event will feature national and regional professional dancers, as well as local rising advanced dance performers.

The festival will begin with an educational technical rehearsal in the morning and conclude with a staged performance lasting through the early evening. During the day, mini dance performances showcasing various dance styles will take place in select areas of Joyner Park culminating with a staged performance.

10 a.m. – noon: Technical Rehearsal – Attendees who want a behind the scenes look can attend the Technical Rehearsal, which is a run-through of the Festival Concert that will take place later in the day. Some of the performers and the stage manager will be available to answer questions.

1 p.m. – 4 p.m.: Tour in Motion – A guided tour will begin at the top of every hour and give attendees the opportunity to experience dance in intimate outdoor settings throughout Joyner Park.

5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.: Festival Concert – The main concert of the festival will feature professional dancers and rising advanced dancers from local dance institutions.

The event will pay tribute to long-time Wake Forest dance instructor Elizabeth “Betty” Hunt Holding and her dance legacy. Having studied ballet under famed Russian choreographer George Balanchine and performed with the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes, Holding arrived in Wake Forest in the 1940s. She opened Wake Forest’s most historic dance studio, the Holding School of Dance, in her home where she taught dance to students for more than 30 years until her death in 2007.

Visit the event’s website www.WakeForestDanceFestival.org and Facebook page www.facebook.com/WakeForestDance for more information on the event and for sponsor and volunteer opportunities.

Fourth Annual "Open the Door" Charity Event

A Doorway to Hope, a Cary based charity, is holding its fourth annual  "Open the Door" charity event on October 1, 7:00pm at Maximillans in Cary.   This event is our only fundraiser to benefit our Crisis Fund.  

Tickets are $75 and are available at www.adoorwaytohope.org  

This year, local jewelry store, Kendra Scott, a Gold level sponsor of the event, is donating 50 boxes of beautiful jewelry, valued at $75-$300, for our "Mystery Jewelry Pull."

Our Crisis Fund helps "working poor" families who are at a critical juncture and need temporary assistance to get back on their feet.  Any one of us can fall on hard times, but many of the "working poor" live paycheck-to-paycheck and do not have the extra resources to cover unexpected expenses. In most cases, these families do not qualify for government assistance and do not know where to turn for help.  ADTH can help prevent a family's homelessness when a crisis occurs.

Through our Crisis Fund, in 2016, we provided emergency funds to prevent eviction to 13 families in Wake County.  In addition, we helped  provide furniture, including beds and critical household items to many families. These families had experienced death, cancer, loss of jobs, loss of spouse, abusive relationship etc. and were suddenly faced with losing their home or having to move unexpectedly. These were families right here in our community.

Cary Fire House Tour Marathon

  • 408 Mills Park Drive Cary, NC, 27519 United States (map)

"Going the Extra Mile" 

We are paying tribute to our friend and fellow firefighter Jon Schondelmayer who spent 20 years working his way through almost every station before passing in December of 2013 in a line of duty-related death.  In it's first year this grassroots event was open to only 75 runners from the Fire Department community but last year it was open to the public with over 250!

Proceeds from this year's race will also go to help set up a Project Lifesaver Program, supporting Triangle Miracle League Baseball, and hosting camp experiences for autistic children.

The event has FIVE race options:

Full Marathon (26.2 miles + Extra Mile): starts at Fire House 6 (Hwy Ten Ten and Kildare Farm Rd) and finishes at Fire House 8 (Mills Park Rd. and Green Level Church Rd.). Race individually or as a relay team (2-7 runners).

Half-Marathon (13.1 miles + Extra Mile): starts near Fire House 1 (N. Harrison and Cary Pkwy) and finishes at Fire House 8. Race individually or as a relay team (2-3 runners).

10K (10K & no extra mile): starts at Fire House 5 (on High House Rd.) and finishes at Fire House 8. 

Both the full and half-marathon runners will get to join the Cary Fire Department in their tradition of "going the extra mile."

Relay team members don't need to sign up together all at once. They can sign up individually so long as they select the team name the first person who signed up created (first person pays the registration fee too!). We believe that he who pays gets to pick the team name!

The course winds through greenways and streets alike. The course not only visits almost every Cary fire station you'll also get to actually run through several of the fire station truck bays. All fire stations will act as both rest and accountability stops.

Sir Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie to Compete in SAS Championship

  • Prestonwood Country Club in Cary (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Golfing legends Sir Nick Faldo (@NickFaldo006) and Colin Montgomerie (@montgomeriefdn) have committed to play in the 2017 SAS Championship, October 13 – 15 at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary.

“Nick and Colin, in addition to being Hall of Fame golfers, are fan favorites that will be sure to entertain everyone attending the SAS Championship in October,” Tournament Director Jeff Kleiber said. “They will add to an already elite field, including Bernhard Langer, John Daly and other legends of golf.”

Faldo, a six-time Major Champion, was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1998. He has collected 39 total victories in his playing career and spent 97 weeks ranked number one in the Official Golf World Rankings. Faldo’s career also includes 12 appearances as part of the Ryder Cup, including his captaincy of the European team in 2008.

Since 2006, Faldo has been the lead golf analyst for CBS. He has competed in three events on the PGA Tour Champions this season, including the U.S. Senior Open Championship and The Senior Open Championship. In October, Faldo will make his first appearance at the SAS Championship since 2014.

“The old Nick Faldo played some real consistent golf. That’s my goal,” Faldo said. “I would love to play like that again.”

Montgomerie has continued the consistency that was a trademark of his career to the PGA Tour Champions. He has finished in the top-3 of the Charles Schwab Money List the last three seasons. The commitment marks Montgomerie’s fifth appearance in the SAS Championship, following a T7 finish in 2016. He has never finished outside of the top 20 in Cary.

In 2013, Montgomerie was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. He won the European Tour’s Order of Merit a total of eight times, including a streak of seven consecutive titles from 1993 – 1999. Montgomerie represented Europe in a total of eight Ryder Cups, including as Captain in 2010.

Faldo (25 points), Langer (24 points), and Montgomerie (23.5 points) are first, second, and third in total points earned for team Europe in the history of the Ryder Cup.

Tickets to see Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie at the SAS Championship, including access to the all-inclusive Mellow Mushroom Chill Club on the 17th Green, are available at www.SASChampionship.com.

Strides for Speech

Sanctioned by USA Track & Field

Imagine if the last thing you said tonight was the last thing you said..... period.  Aphasia is a devastating consequence to stroke, brain injury, and other progressive diseases that rob individuals of their ability to express their thoughts and ideas.  Even with intact cognition, memory, and intellect, individuals suffering from aphasia often feel isolated not being able to return to the vocational or recreational pursuits they had prior to their diagnosis. 

The Triangle Aphasia Project, Unlimited is a nonprofit organization that provides programming to individuals with aphasia, their families, and the community.  With a Life Participation approach, we strive to reduce communication barriers and improve social engagement and speech/language potential.  TAP provides group programs, trainings, education and opportunities throughout the Triangle and beyond.

TAP's goal for Strides for Speech is not just to help support its community programming but also provide a fun, safe activity for those with aphasia and their families. Whether you walk, run, stroll, or roll this 5K and 1Ž2 mile is a perfect opportunities for everyone to come together to support TAP and learn more about how they can help those we serve. 

We hope you'll join us on October 14th and please invite your friends and family to walk or run with you!

Tire Rack Street Survival® Teen Driving School

Tire Rack Street Survival® is a 501c3 organization and is the largest active non-profit national driver education program that teaches teens the skills they need to stay alive behind the wheel. Unlike traditional driver’s education programs based on classroom theory and simple maneuvers, the Tire Rack Street Survival® program improves driver competence through hands-on experiences in real-world driving situations.

Students will receive a valuable classroom session and then will learn, hands-on, how to manage everyday driving hazards, obstacles and challenges in a controlled environment on an advanced driving course to ultimately ‘arrive alive.’ 

Students learn emergency braking and skid control, how to control proper braking, and how to avoid accidents entirely. In select schools, in addition to spending time in the driver’s seat of parked 18-wheeler to fully comprehend its massive blind spots, teenagers witness the violent detonation of an air bag, which reinforces proper hand placement on the steering wheel.

Students are taught in their own cars, not specially prepared program vehicles, so the skills they learn can be directly translated to their daily driving experiences. Tire Rack Street Survival® challenges teenagers to understand how to control a vehicle, rather than just operate one.

Tire Rack Street Survival® is open to licensed and permitted drivers ages 15 – 21. Forms, schedules and more information can be found online at www.streetsurvival.org. The cost is $75 per student and some insurance companies offer premium discounts to graduates.

The program is in its 15th year having trained over 20,000 new drivers. In 2016, over 100 schools were completed nationally.

For the 8th year, Michelin North America is supporting the Street Survival program by providing funding for pavement rental for each school throughout the United States. That is no small task, given that this year the Tire Rack Street Survival schools plan to offer its training to teens all across the U.S.

Ellie Helton, a vibrant, loving 14-year old, passed away on July 16, 2014 as a result of a brain aneurysm. Ellie loved God, her family and friends, superheroes, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and pizza.

This race is run in honor of this special girl and to raise awareness and funds for research. "...and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrews 12:1

This year our event will be raising funds to support our Chair of Research in Honor of Ellie Helton to help the Foundation in their mission to promote early detection of brain aneurysms by providing knowledge and raising awareness of the signs, symptoms and risk factors. Work with the medical communities to provide support networks for patients and families, as well as to further research that will improve patient outcomes and save lives.

By Thornton Wilder

For the citizens of Grover’s Corners, life is sweet. The doctor makes house calls, the teenage boy delivers the paper and the Boy-Next-Door meets the Girl-Next-Door. Set in an All-American small town at the turn of the century, this 80th anniversary production of Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a heartwarming and deeply moving reminder to appreciate life while one has it and to relish every moment – no matter how mundane it seems – for it is those small moments that are truly miraculous. A partnership production with UNC School of the Arts.

An Evening with Alison Krauss & David Gray

Alison inhabits–and liberates–the very essence that makes each of the songs eternal. While they span different eras and musical genres, there is a unifying sensibility. Some of the songs are familiar–like “Gentle On My Mind,” a signature song of Glen Campbell’s, and “You Don’t Know Me” which was a hit for Eddy Arnold and Ray Charles. Others were lesser known, like Willie Nelson’s “I Never Cared For You” and “All Alone Am I,” originally recorded by Brenda Lee.

Twenty one years since his first studio album, David Gray’s tenth and latest, Mutineers, finds the singer-songwriter steering into unfamiliar territory while cultivating a pugnacious but respectful relationship with his own history. “I think if you’re going forward with an open heart, good things will happen,” says David. “You have to sort of tear up the past and let it go.”
David’s past includes the phenomenal success of White Ladder (seven million copies sold), one of three UK number one albums, with records that became ubiquitous and others that needed to be sought out to be heard. It’s a richness of terrain and experience over a duration that belies the traditions and expectations of popular music as surely as the songs themselves.

Despite such variance in both the content and reception of his prior output, the only certainty David had at the commencement of his new recording was the need to surprise himself, not just in terms of how he worked, but the ideas that drove him and the people he worked with.

Rotary District 7710 6th Annual GlobalRun4Water

  • 201 Soccer Park Drive Cary, NC, 27511 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Presented by Rotary District 7710
Produced by Fit & Able Productions, Inc.

District 7710 Mission: Our mission is to help needy people in the world have clean drinking water, because safe water helps to liberate people so they can live healthier, fuller, and more productive lives. At the same time we are going to raise awareness among Rotarians of the worldwide water crisis and improve Rotary's public image as a major player in the water and sanitation cause.

How Past Proceeds were Used:

Over the 5 years of this race, we have raised over $61,000. Using these proceeds in combination with matching funds from District 7710 and The Rotary Foundation, we have been able to provide clean water, hygiene training, and in some cases modern sanitation facilities to villages and schools in Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Lebanon, Peru, Tanzania, and Uganda.

Clean water, hygiene training, and adequate sanitation facilities are much needed components for disease prevention, good health, and quality of life that the residents of these communities lacked due to their extreme poverty.

New Project - Proceeds from the 6th Annual District 7710 GlobalRun4Water will be used to help fund projects in Peru and other areas currently being evaluated.

Fuquay-Varina Out of the Darkness Community Walk

Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, September 24, 2017 – Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, yet suicide is preventable. More than 300 people from throughout Fuquay-Varina are expected to participate in the annual Fuquay-Varina Out of the Darkness Community Walk hosted by the North Carolina State Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) at 2:00 p.m., September 24, 2017 at South Park, 900 S. Main Street. This fundraising walk supports AFSP’s local, state and national education and advocacy programs and its bold goal to reduce the annual rate of suicide 20 percent by 2025.

“We walk to raise awareness about this important health issue. Suicide touches one in five American families. We hope that by walking we save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide,”
said Katie Biasi, Public Relations Chair for the FV OOTD Community Walk.

The Fuquay-Varina Out of the Darkness Walk is one of more than 375 Out of the Darkness Community Walks being held nationwide this year. The walks are expected to unite more than 250,000 walkers and raise millions for suicide prevention efforts. Last year this walk raised over $24,000 and had 285 participants.

Ken Smith, WRAL TV Anchor and Reporter, will be the Fuquay-Varina Out of the Darkness Walk Master of Ceremonies. Speakers at the Fuquay-Varina Out of the Darkness Walk will include: John Byrne, Mayor of Fuquay-Varina; Kay Digh, Fuquay-Varina Middle and High School Psychologist; and Sergeant First Class (SFC) Dalmara Gamble of the North Carolina National Guard.

“These walks are about turning hope into action,” said AFSP CEO Robert Gebbia. “Suicide is a serious problem, but it’s a problem we can solve. The research has shown us how to fight suicide, and if we keep up the fight the science is only going to get better, our culture will get smarter about mental health, and we’ll be able to save more people from dying from depression and other mental health conditions.”

The 5th Annual Fuquay-Varina Out of the Darkness Community Walk will take place on Sunday, September 24 at Fuquay-Varina’s South Park. Registration starts at 1p.m.and “The Walk” at 2p.m. All proceeds benefit local and national prevention and awareness programs of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Want to learn more www.outofthedarkness.org, or call 888-333-2377. A local email is: afsp.org/NorthCarolina
