Brian's Cause takes place Saturday

Rush Memorial Hospital will be the host for the annual fundraiser Brian’s Cause – Together We Can this Saturday, Aug. 24.

The morning begins at 8 a.m. with a free health fair. The fair will consist of skin cancer screenings, blood pressure screenings, and blood work for cholesterol, blood sugar, thyroid, HDL, LDL, and PSA (prostate) for men. If getting blood work done, fasting should happen after midnight the night before the fair. The fair will be open until 10 a.m.

Subway and the RMH Cultivation Club will offer breakfast to the first 100 guests for $1.50 each. Thanks to a generous donation from the Rushville Subway restaurant the breakfast is available for a small fee compared to their customary breakfast cost for this event. Breakfast will be served from 8 to 9:30 a.m.

Fun activities will be held from 9 to 9:30 a.m. when open registration begins. Everyone is invited to join the events of the day for a $25 registration/donation fee.

An extensive silent auction will occur until 11:30 a.m. Decorative items for your home, local business gift certificates, game tickets for the Cincinnati Reds, Indiana Fever, autographed items from the Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis Colts, various concert tickets, state attraction admission tickets, and more make up this great silent auction.

The Brian’s Cause ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. with the introduction of 2013 Honorary Chair Mary Harping. Guest speakers, special music by Anecia Crowdus, followed by a cancer survivor recognition and remembrance ceremony will round out the ceremony.

Everyone will have an opportunity to write their loved one’s name and a sentiment on quilt squares. The squares will be made into a quilt that will be auctioned off at a later time.

The annual balloon release will occur as cancer survivors are celebrated and loved ones lost remembered. The ceremony will end with a 2-mile voluntary walk to North Veteran’s Park and back the hospital. Wheelchairs, golf carts, and wagons are welcomed in the walk. For those choosing not to walk, music and the silent auction will continue.
