Applied Electronics Truss at St. Jude 5K

StJude-Banners-AVR-ChicagoA little run goes a long way

AVR audio visual equipment rentals in Chicago had the pleasure of casting some display banners for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on our Applied Electronics truss and cranks this past weekend.  They held their annual 5K fundraiser run to benefit the hospital and its programs.

An early call and some heavy winds made it an interesting morning but all went well in the end.  By the time the run got under way and the runners were off, it was a beautiful Chicago morning and from the looks of the runners faces all were enjoying the event.

Banner Stands from AVR Chicago

As stated AVR Chicago used our Applied Electronics truss and crank banner stands.  The ease of use with AE cranks is a wonderful thing.  The ground support legs are nicely attached to the base of the unit and is held by one pin that easily allows for extension and set-up.

2015-9-26 St. Jude-1The truss is held on top by a yolk that is tailored to the dimensions of those sticks.  Bolted together we used 16 ft. for the starting line and 24 ft. for the event stage.

After much deliberation with the St. Jude marketing team, we decided to go bigger next year to make room for some side banners and add as much signage as we can to advertise the hospital and this noble cause.  Hope to see you there next year!
