Schurig to start charity run at Breakbulk Americas

July 12 - Flensborg and Associates, a Munich-based sales and consulting firm, has announced that Buddy Schurig from Texas Terminals will be firing the starter's gun at this year's Business Run, which will take place in New Orleans on September 25, during

The Business Run combines athletics, networking and charitable fundraising for professionals in the heavy lift and breakbulk industries, with visitors and exhibitors from the Breakbulk Americas Conference and Exhibition participating.

Hundreds of runners have taken part in previous Business Runs in cities including Antwerp, Houston, Singapore, New Orleans, Munich, and Shanghai, with thousands of dollars being raised for charitable causes.

The Business Run event circuit is the brainchild of coordinators Anders and Katrin Flensborg, who lead Flensborg and Associates.

The upcoming 16th Business Run in New Orleans, will start at 07:30 on September 25, 2013, offering a choice of two routes: 5 km for less ambitious runners and a 10 km for more athletic participants.

As well as HLPFI, sponsors include Clipper, Port of Antwerp, Ceres Barge Line, Albacor Shipping, Texas Terminals, Zuidnatie Breakbulk nv, TAMUG, Heavy International Services, Port of Houston, CSX and Journal of Commerce.

The participation fee is a very affordable USD35.00, with all the proceeds being donated to Texas A&M University at Galveston-Maritime Scholarship Fund.

HLPFI will once again be represented by Luke King, provided he recovers from a training injury.
