IES Brain Research Foundation Baseball & Fireworks Night with the SkyHawks
July 25, 2008
This event was great fun for all of the families and friends who attended to support the Foundation! It was a fun baseball game and the fireworks were awesome! IES Brain Research Foundation supporters had a chance to meet and take photographs with some of the players before the game. The Sky Hawks mascot came over to our section and posed with some of our young supporters. Thank you to all the participants, volunteers and sponsors. Special thank you to the U.S. Army, Oak Tree Pre-school and Lundbeck Research, USA, Inc.
Cycle for Brain Health 2008
During Cycle for Brain Health, participants kept track of the miles cycled for the month of June and raised pledges for IES Brain Research Foundation for each mile they rode. It encouraged cycling outdoors more, getting into better shape, and family time together in a healthy way, while raising money for IESBRF.
We are happy with the results of our first Cycle for Brain Health event.
* Congratulations and thanks to our top five money raisers: 1st Zachary Ogorzalek, 2nd Madison Ogorzalek, 3rd Elise Schlosser, 4th Dan Mausner, 5th Keith Woelfel.
* Congratulations to Team Ogor, our top $ raising team & family, who raised $1260 for the Foundation.
Thank you to everyone who rode and raised money. A special thank you to our sponsors: First Hope Bank, McGuire Chevrolet, Lundbeck Research, USA, and Eastern Propane.
