Top of Mind Networks is proud to again sponsor the Third Annual Harris Orsini Benefit Golf Tournament. This year’s tournament is Saturday, November 3, 2012 at Crosswinds Golf Course in Savannah, GA. So any of our friends or clients in the Savannah area are invited to participate.
The backstory of this tournament is that my nephew, Harris, was diagnosed with the liver disease Biliary Atresia at 7 weeks old. He has spent almost half of his first 20 months in a hospital and has been through more pain and sickness than most of us will in our lifetimes. Treatment for this disease ultimately resulted in a liver transplant about this time last year. Harris is now doing great, and aside from a really awesome scar on his stomach, is a normal 2 year old boy.
This year the tournament is set to aid Harris’s friend, Teddy, who is also in need of a transplant. So this year please help Harris help Teddy. For more information, please visit http://www.facebook.com/#!/events/111791038968890/.
Top of Mind is a proud sponsor of Team 57 of Team In Training to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Our very own Jonas Kruckeberg is leading this fundraising effort by running in several marathons along the West Coast. If you would like more information about this fund raising effort, please visit Team 57′s TIT page here.
If you’re like me, you’ve struggled with making the time to exercise regularly. Here’s the investment I made in myself this year. Now, I don’t have to choose between working on my business and working on my health. See below for more details.
A: Surefire. Of course, my #1 key to domination is the Surefire System. I have it open on my left monitor. I use MS Outlook for day-to-day email (right monitor).
B: Telephone. Surefire does a lot of my heavy lifting. Still, there’s no replacement for picking up the phone and engaging in conversation. I’ve circled my wireless headset. I need this to help offset the noise the treadmill makes plus it allows me to have my hands free.
C: TreadDesk Treadmill: As I create this blog article, I’m walking at 2.2 MPH. So far today, I’ve covered 7.89 miles and have burned 720 calories. Sure beats sitting on my tush. ALSO: The adjustable height desk allows me to raise and lower my workstation with the push of a button. Highly recommended. Disclaimer – I am not affiliated with nor compensated by either company or product. I am merely a happy customer spreading the word.
D: H2O: Always stay hydrated.
E: Treadmill Speed Control: This is what I use to speed up and slow down the treadmill. Guess what, I’m up to 8.01 miles for the day and 731 calories. Whoo Hoo!
This weekend, March 31, 2012, is Andee’s Army 5K Fun Run. The andee’s army foundation is focused on supporting children with brain injuries.
A little about Andee from the andeesarmy website.
“On January 4, 2011, Andee Poulos, an Eighth Grader at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School, fell victim to a circulatory problem in her brain, an extremely rare condition called Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). The AVM was something she most likely had been born with but had gone undetected until it caused a medical emergency. Assessment of her condition was made at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite followed by life-saving brain surgery at Emory University Hospital. Andee’s parents, John and Lyn, have been rotating between Atlanta and Houston assisting with Andee’s care and recovery, and they along with Andee’s younger brother George, are anxiously awaiting her permanent return home.”
This is truly near and dear to my heart because we have been friends with the Poulos family for many years. We live in the same neighborhood and our kids play together. Andee is an exceptional young lady and I’m very proud that Top of Mind Networks is helping to sponsor this event.
If you are in the Atlanta area and would like to participate in a fun 5K run/walk and support the cause, full details can be found here:
If you would like to learn more about the great work this organization is doing for kids, make a contribution, or find out more about Andee’s personal history/events and her ongoing recovery via her carepages, you can find out more here:
Thank you for your awareness, support, and contributions!
My nephew Harris was diagnosed with the liver disease Biliary Atresia at 7 weeks old. He has spent almost half of his first 20 months on this planet in a hospital and has been through more pain and sickness than most of us will in our lifetimes. But through it all he is such a trooper and always has a smile on his face. Treatment for this disease is expensive and ultimately will result in a liver transplant. The transplant and the medication to prevent rejection of the new organ (which he will have to take for the rest of his life) are also very costly.
In the spirit of our industry giving back, and since this is obviously a cause that is near and dear to my heart, Top of Mind is helping sponsor the 2nd Annual Harris Orsini Benefit Golf Tournament on Saturday October 1 to help his parents cover the costs of his treatments. Anyone in the greater Savannah, GA area is invited to participate. If you would like to play in, or help sponsor this event, all of the pertinent information is in the website below. Thank you for your support!

Whether Rock or Metal are your scene or not, if you live in the Atlanta area please consider dropping by for what is sure to be a great time. Event and ticket information is below:
Top of Mind is pleased to team up with some of our good friends over at Silverton Mortgage in sponsoring the 2011 Dunwoody Charity Golf Tournament.

Thanks to all who participated!
