Norris Needs Wheels

As we’ve said before, at DMC, we love giving back to the communities we serve and helping our clients achieve success while working for a greater cause. In addition to helping our clients achieve their charitable goals, DMC takes on some causes of our own, and right now our goal is to help our friend, Norris, cross the finish line.

Norris is a 19-year-old with Cerebral Palsy- Spastic Diplegia, and he needs our help to achieve his dream of reaching the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo. Although Norris has already made a name for himself by breaking several records, he is striving to reach the global arena which demands added dedication, training, and the best equipment possible. Norris is in need of Corima Carbon wheels and a roller trainer that will allow him to be able to train indoors, regardless of weather. The cost of the Corima 700 C wheels and training equipment is $4000 and the travel cost to get to Switzerland for the Olympic Trials will be just over $1000.

To help our friend Norris, we’re working to share his story with as many people as possible. We’ve created the hashtag #NorrisNeedsWheels to spread the word on social media. To donate to the cause or for more information about Norris and his dream, visit the Norris Foster GoFundMe page. We thank you in advance for your generosity, caring, and support for this incredible young man and future Olympian!

Stop Bunting and Aim for the Fences!

Baseball season started up again this last weekend, and I just couldn’t help myself when I started thinking about all the times I met with business owners who insisted on bunting for their business just as a safe way to “get on base.”

But, for those who are setting their sights much higher, and trust me we meet with a lot of those business owners too, DMC is “on deck” and ready to help knock it out of the park!

Remember, in business and life in general, not every at-bat turns into a home run, but the more times you step to the plate, the more home runs you’ll hit.

To show you we’re in it to win it, the DMC team recently overhauled our entire website and I couldn’t be more proud. I’d love to hear your feedback on it to let me know if we hit the grand-slam or not.
