Jay Dix Challenge to Cure, just around the corner!

The 12th Annual Jay Dix Challenge to Cure will be held on May 10, 2014 at Flat Branch Park at 9am.  Three different events are offered for all levels: a 5k walk, a 5k run, and a 10k run. All benefits from the race benefits Ellis Fischel. The Challenge to Cure has raised nearly $165,000 for cancer research since it began in 2003.Jay Dix 2014

The Columbia Multisport Club established the Challenge to Cure in memory of Jay Dix, MD, an MU pathologist who fought his own battle with cancer. Dr. Dix also served as the Medical Examiner for Boone and Callaway counties from 1980-1989. After working as the Deputy Chief Medical Examiner of New York City for a year, Dr. Dix returned to Columbia and resumed his duties as Medical Examiner for Boone and Callaway counties. Jay always found time to exercise four or five times a week. Even before his bout with cancer, his commitment to wellness inspired many. The Jay Dix Challenge to Cure celebrates Jay’s passion for fitness and competition while giving back to the community that he so loved.

In 2014, the Challenge to Cure has partnered with the COMO Kids Challenge, which is part of the Mayor’s Council on Physical Fitness.  On race day, nearly 100 children will complete their last mile of 26 miles to complete their year-long commitment to themselves and to the community to become involved in volunteering, reading and fitness. It will be exciting to see the next generation receive their finisher’s medal with hundreds of people cheering them on.

As always, the Challenge to Cure features:

  • a beautiful, well-supported course
  • an awesome race t-shirt
  • custom designed awards medals for top 3 in each age group
  • the first 500 registrants receive a custom tote bag courtesy of Bob McCosh Chevrolet
  • best swag bag you’ll ever see for a 5k or 10k
  • AND a pancake breakfast for volunteers & racers
So, get your walking or running shoes on and join us for a morning of exercise and camaraderie all in support of Ellis Fischel! The registration fee increases April 11th, so enter today & SAVE! New this year is the Team Registration option. Teams of 10 or more receive $5 off each person’s entry fee. This is an excellent opportunity for co-workers, family, friends, neighborhoods…you name it…to get together for a great cause!

Be sure to check the website for complete details www.challengetocure.com.  Stay tuned for more Jay Dix updates on our Facebook page because this is an exciting time to be a part of the Jay Dix Challenge to Cure!

Please contact me if you have any questions.  See you all on May 10!

As your bike sits through the winter or lives on you trainer… all that use and abuse from last year doesn’t mend itself.  Things break, they stretch, they dry up, they get worn out!

Safety is the highest priority of CMC and we want you to be safe.  Before you really start your season of training on the trails and roads or racing, take your bike into a CMC sponsor bike shop for a good tune up.

Sponsor Post – Utility bill sticker shock? – Chapman Heating & Air Conditioning

Have you experienced utility bill sticker shock as a result of this crazy winter?  I’m excited to be working for long time CMC sponsor Chapman Heating and Air Conditioning as a BPI certified energy auditor, so there’s a good chance I can help you out with those utility bills! No, I’m not going to help pay them, they pay me well, but not that well!
I’ve been doing extensive $400  “Home Performance with Energy Star” audits on homes in which I really go in depth and spend three to four hours looking at things and testing the house. Due to this crazy winter the resulting crazy high bills, we are going to start offering a $100 “Efficiency Diagnostic” which will be a shorter (60 to 90 minutes) audit. In this efficiency diagnostic, I’ll point out any flaws in the thermal envelope of your house and any “low hanging fruit” to reduce those outrageous utility bills. Here’s the cool part: now through the end of April, CMC members will get the efficiency diagnostic for $59! Give us a call at (573)445-4489 and we can help you start reducing those bills…
