 If you have not gotten Avadim Technologies Inc. involved as a sponsor to your Blue Ridge Classic, you probably should. They are a local Asheville company that is doing a lot of work in the Bioscience area, with a good amount of research and testing in big name college sports. They already have a number of products out on the market, but the most relevant one to your program would be Theraworx Relief ( theraworxrelief.com
 
   In my mind this company because of their products, and the number of schools and athletes they can get in front of, at this one local event, should become “THE Sponsor” of the “Blue Ridge Classic” from this year going forward. Which could relieve you of the funding task. You can find information on them on the internet, but if you need any further limited contact information please let me know.Tom Cooper
