    Kudos to Mt Brighton and Team XLR8

    One of my training partners with the Team XLR8 Adult Race Training program at Mt Brighton, Larry Burroughs, is ranked high in the Male 70-74 division this season, both in the state of Michigan and nationally.

    He has been skiing and racing really well this year, is a great and enthusiastic supporter of the kids in the Team XLR8 program, and is at Mt Brighton all the time, racing himself and encouraging and cheering the kids on. He has never attended Nationals, and in spite of his fine season, and despite the encouragement of many of us, he has been reluctant to go.

    Well last Friday night, team XLR8 Race Director Brian Lovejoy organized a suprise fundraiser at Mt Brighton to help get Larry over the hump. The special "Send Larry To Nationals" race night, featured over 50 Team XLR8 members and supporters running through the gates at Mt Brighton, with unlimited racing for a donation of your choice. The night was a huge success, with enough donations raised to send Larry to Nationals.

    I know Mt Brighton takes a hit on this forum at times, but overwhelming kudos need to be extended to the staff at Mt Brighton, XLR8 race team director Brian Lovejoy, and all the Team XLR8 members and friends who showed up and donated to the cause. It's heartwarming to see when racers come together to support one of their own, and they should all be commended. Congrats to you all! It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy or better racer.

    Good luck at Nationals, my friend. You and the entire XLR8 Race Team Family are already winners, in my book!
