In recognition of the accomplishments of the athletes and the hundreds of volunteers who have dedicated countless hours to organize the Games, the Williamson County Commissioners Court proclaimed November 26 as “United States Ismaili Games Together We Win Day.”

In her remarks, Jasmeen Peermohammed, Member of the Ismaili Council for the Southwestern United States, spoke about how the Games have continued to showcase excellence in athletics, teamwork, and sportsmanship, promote friendly competition, and bring together athletes, spectators, and volunteers in the spirit of community.

Commissioner Terry Cook, who introduced the Proclamation, stated that “I was happy to sponsor and pass a Proclamation of the Commissioners Court ... We hope that every participant, and their family members and friends, have a great time over this weekend. Thank you for choosing Williamson County and Central Texas to showcase your community’s talent, skills, and camaraderie. Good luck to all of the athletes!”

Scores of volunteers from the various project management teams have been behind-the-scenes for many months preparing for the sports, activities, and events, including teams dedicated to communications, audio-visual, hospitality, registration, transportation, food service, and much more. Ismail Momin, a member of the Sites and Logistics team, shared with us his inspiration to volunteer: “Volunteerism continues to bring together individuals from various backgrounds, cultures, and skill-sets. This shared dedication to serve is what unites our community at large. Serving is a blessing in my life and I am so proud to be amongst such dedicated volunteers on the USIG team."

Good morning and welcome to the race on this refreshing morning.

Thank you for choosing to spend the beginning of your Saturday with us and many of the Hope Alliance Team.

Please raise your hand if you are a member/volunteer with Hope Alliance.

Hope Alliance exists to assist those whose lives have been affected by family and sexual violence. This team provides services, safety, and develops partnerships that lead to hope, healing, and prevention.

Abuse in families or dating relationships does not discriminate.  It doesn’t matter how much money someone makes, where they live, what color their skin is, nor what sex they are, although females are abused to a higher rate than males.

We usually think of abuse as violent abuse between people and that is a very common form. And it’s costly. In the United States, the estimated cost of violent abuse is between $5-10 billion dollars each year. That includes medical expenses, police and court costs, shelter and foster care, company money spent on sick leave and absenteeism, and money lost due to non-productive time. But most cases of physical abuse aren’t reported and the injured avoid seeking medical care 2/3’s of the time.

9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.  A woman in America was just beaten by her partner.

But abuse doesn’t have to leave a mark.
