A Vice President with Balance Innovations, Gary Rixson specializes in reviewing and deploying unique cash management and cash reconciliation solutions for large retailers. In his leisure time, Gary Rixson is an avid runner and completed the Chicago Marathon in 2013.

Chicago Marathon participants are invited to participate in the 27th Mile Post-Race Party, which will be held at Grant’s Park Butler Field. Attendees over 21 years of age will also be able to redeem the tear-off portion of their bib for a free 312 Urban Wheat Ale, and additional food and beverages will also be on hand for purchase.

Also, runners will be able to meet up with their families at the Runner Reunite section of the party, which will be sectioned off alphabetically to help runners and families more easily find one another. Runners should allow for enough time to pick up their belongings from gear check, as well as the time it will take to make their way through the finish area, when making meetup plans with their families.

Runners will be treated to complimentary massages after the race from faculty, students, and alumni of the Cortiva Institute, which will be held at the massage tent, located in the southwest corner of the party area.


Chiefs Place Charles on PUP List

Vice President of Balance Innovations, Gary Rixson possesses more than 20 years of experience working in business development, operations, and various leadership roles. Outside his professional life, Gary Rixson follows the NFL and is a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Kansas City Chiefs recently placed star running back Jamaal Charles on the physically unable to perform list, but head coach Andy Reid says the move is not indicative of any delay in his recovery from an injured knee.

Charles is looking to bounce back from ACL surgery after injuring his knee in a week five loss to the Chicago Bears last season.

Reid says that Charles is on track, but that the team wants to be patient with his recovery. With capable replacements Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware in the backfield, the Chiefs can afford to take a cautious approach with Charles’ return timetable.

The Chiefs are able to remove Charles from the physically unable to perform list when he receives medical clearance from doctors, though it appears that may not happen anytime soon.
