June’s Blog – Mom’s on the Run and the Miracle Madness

Welcome back.  As I write this blog this afternoon, the 3 time World Series Champions SF Giants are playing and SF needs a WIN!  Even more important than that, our Vice President, Mr. Adam Heuer, recently presided over the Reno South Rotary’s most improved student banquet where some very deserving  local high school kids get awarded Scholarships as the Most Improved Student of their respective school.  Just hearing these kids’ stories is heartwarming and a tear jerker.  I attended one of the preliminary events and it was nothing short of AWESOME!  I really invite you to check out Rotary’s website at www.renosouthrotary.org . Adam’s year of Presidency is almost over and he has received huge compliments of a job well done.


Heuer Insurance LOVES to be involved in the community, so look for us out there and let us know what charity YOU support and maybe we can join in and help, maybe even a matching funds type of deal, if it was done right and still affordable, I think it would be a great way to help local nonprofit groups, that are important to you.


This August, one of our most valued Team members celebrates their 29th anniversary of working at Heuer Insurance, and for their clients.  If you get a chance, send her a quick email or better yet give her a call and congratulate her personally.  LaRee Cobb is in our personal lines department and has served our clients for a LONG LONG time!  Great job LaRee, here’s to 29 more fabulous years!!


I would also like to talk briefly about keeping your dollars local, and as a business owner I can tell you how much we appreciate your dollars staying local.  My FAVORITE store to spend my local dollars, is Scheels Outfitters in Sparks.  Out of all the stores I used to frequent, these guys have it going on!  Whether it’s a blue shirt associate or a white shirt, they always care about the customer.  I LOVE it when you walk in and are greeted by one of the associates at the cash registers…..it makes you feel local and glad you are.  I would also like to personally thank, and give a loud shout out, to the manager of the fishing department…Chris Pyra.  I promise you, if you need help, or have a tough question, this guy can help!  Great job Chris and Scheels, you are both a credit to the concept of spending your dollars locally. Thank you for taking the time to read our most recent publication, we appreciate each and every one of you. Larry Heuer

This month we also want to highlight some activities that our team supports, first, Debi Baucom has a short blurb about her experience with the annual Mom’s on the Run Fundraiser:


The ladies in my family and I proudly sign up for Moms On The Run every year.  It is always held on Mother’s Day.  This was their 15th year.  Moms On The Run is a non-profit organization created by hard working, caring people of the Reno community. They financially assist local patients during treatment for breast and gynecological cancers when it can be very difficult to pay living expenses.  All donations stay in Northern Nevada.  This event offers a 3k/5k Walk and 5k/10k Run as well as a Bon Bon Stroll and Kidlet’s Race.  Please visit their website www.momsontherun.info to get involved!  I would encourage anyone to help in this endeavor, and I would like to thank my family and Heuer Insurance for getting involved in this important organization.


Secondly, our newest team member Mike Powell was involved with the Miracle Madness Charity and he would like to tell you about it:


I recently participated in the Miracle Madness charity event hosted by Phi Delta Epsilon at the University of Nevada-Reno. It was an amazing event created to raise money for the Renown Children’s Miracle Network and they helped raise more than $10,000! The dance marathon hosted several local bands and dance crews and a carnival themed walkway full of face painting, pie throwing, and bounce houses! Kids of all ages joined in the festivities; unaware of the impact they were having on the lives of the hundreds of kids who pass through the children’s hospital. It was a fun loving event with great intentions and I enjoyed being able to participate this year!  Heuer Insurance Agency and I encourage others to get involved and help make a difference!
