Local High Point businessmen help father attend daughter's Olympic performance in Sochi

Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia: Medal standings:  Norway with 7. Canada and USA tied with 5 medals.  www.nbcolympics.com/

High Point native Heather Richardson, our LOCAL 24-year-old speedskater at the Olympics, will compete in four events at the Sochi Games, beginning with the 500 meters on Tuesday.  *Heather’s mom and – now her dad – will be in the stands this week to watch her compete…thanks to the response of Triad business leaders after an article about the Richardson family appeared in last Sunday’s Greensboro News & Record.

Heather’s mother, Pat Richardson, planned to make the trip with her sister and three family friends. But even after taking out a second mortgage, there wasn’t enough money for Jeff Richardson to make the trip, too.

*Several community leaders came together including: an area attorney, chairman of the board for High Point Bank and retired business man and Nido Qubein, president of High Point University to pay Jeff’s way!!
