Bring on the music!
Wow. I don't recall a more jam-packed magazine issue than this one. In fact, there are so many walks, runs, fund-raisers, and upcoming events, that I am not quite sure where to begin.
So, I'll start with my favorite: music. Innsbrook After Hours. If you've gotten this far, you've seen the line-up as of press time, and it's pretty impressive. Sheryl Crow, BB King, The Pat McGee Band (reuniting for play in Innsbrook!), Daughtry, The Marshall Tucker Band (iconic), Pet Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Darius Rucker, The Beach Boys?

OK, now for the walks and runs and benefits. Color Me Rad raised $31K for Special Olympics Virginia -- enough money to pay for 200 individuals to participate in the Summer Games this year. Plus, after checking out these photos, it's clear this was as much a fun-raiser as a fund-raiser. Unbelievable! Whoever thought of spraying paint at 10,000 runners through Innsbrook is pure genius.
Huge news: Innsbrook's first ever triathlon is coming to Innsbrook Saturday and Sunday, May 4 - 5 and it is also one of the largest; it's the National East Coast Triathlon Festival.
