Ride for the Cure names Aspen event chairman ASPEN The Aspen affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure recently announced that Bill Fabrocini, certified clinical specialist in orthopedic physical therapy at the W. I. N. Institute, will be the chairman for the fourth annual Aspen/ Snowmass Ride for the Cure on Sept. 8. Fabrocini has been a Ride subcommittee chairman. You have to give sometimes, Fabrocini said. My time is definitely as valuable as anybodys, but that doesnt matter. There should be a time in everyones life to be selfless; to devote your time to the better good. Basically, if you just have the attitude to give, you will. That is my philosophy, and therefore my own attitude. Fabrocini was the president and facility coordinator of the Carmichael Training Systems Performance Center at the W.I.N. Institute, a high-elevation training facility in Aspen specializing in fundamental and advanced concepts of athletic performance. Chris Carmichael, founder of Carmichael Training Systems, was Lance Armstrongs coach during his seven straight Tour de France wins. He is not only the Rides national spokesman, but also a yearly participant in the event since its inception. Carmichael is training with NBC Today Show co-anchor Ann Curry in anticipation of the Ride. The Aspen/ Snowmass Ride for the Cure is a 100-mile cycling event. In 2006, it grossed $713,000, with 75 percent net funds staying in Komen Aspens tri-county service area from Aspen to Glenwood Springs and from Silt to Vail, to fund grants that help underserved or uninsured women fight breast cancer. The remaining 25 percent of the net income helped fund the national Komen Foundation Research & Awards Programs.Realtor joins Lucas and Co.

According to the company, Hirschs move to a Basalt office addresses the growing need for real-estate agents in the midvalley to handle the high-end market, fast-paced sales and development opportunities. Anyone who has worked with Scott knows his level of commitment is unparalleled, his professionalism is beyond reproach, and that he is an asset to any project he works on and any office he works in, Lucas said. Scott will be specializing in development opportunities, an area that I have specialized in for the last 13 years. I certainly can use the help. In addition to specializing in development opportunities, Scott will continue to help clients achieve financial independence through real-estate acquisitions. His telephone number is 319-6642.New faces at offices of RE/MAX Mountain West CARBONDALE Chris Romme and Julian Hardaker recently joined the real estate team at RE/MAX Mountain West in Carbondale.

We realized that our winter guests were largely unaware of how wonderful the Colorado Rockies are as a summer destination, said Jim Feldhaus, vice president of media services. As a result, we have partnered with the resort communities to send our visitors home with a reminder that these resorts are just as spectacular in the summertime. In each CME van are copies of Destinations West, a complimentary publication aimed at providing visitors with an informational tool and a resource for visiting the resort destination of their choice. Inside are trail maps, resort directories, dining, shopping and entertainment guides, and other helpful information. Additionally, CME shows guests a short video that provides resort-specific information to inform, educate and inspire as they begin their vacations. On the return trips to the airport, CME shows an additional video highlighting the summer and encourages guests to return.
