In June 2018 we officially broke ground on phase one at Waterloo Playground! In celebration, the community, local partners and city officials all came out to witness and hear about the exciting things coming to Waterloo.
Our 4th annual event in partnership with Healthbridge Chiropractic was a huge success! The event took place in the locker room at Lincoln Financial Field. Guests walked through the tunnel and onto the field and enjoyed dinner bites, and drinks by Stateside Vodka, Evil Genius and E&J Gallo wines. This year we raised the bar again by bringing in $110K to support the advancement of our mission and work.
