RHI Sports Wishes All the Very Best This Holiday Season! December 1st, 2011


The end of the year causes all of us involved with running the RHI Sports Program to pause and consider the amazing efforts of everyone associated with this great endeavor.


We all marvel at the athletes: Beginners – who come out to try new sports that test their abilities and strain their muscles;

The players who have conquered one sport and decide that it’s time to learn another and often succeed in mastery beyond their (and our)

wildest dreams…


And the stars who having thrilled us with their daring and expertise, return to give back to those who are beginning their journey, who remember where they started, and always, always impress us with their humility and strength.


We give thanks for all these people and also for our volunteers.

Thanks to all our board members who attend meetings, take their time, spend their money and care so much about the development of a program that focuses on the great disabled athletes we serve.

We especially appreciate the support we receive from the hospital management and the leadership provided by the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana Foundation leadership.


All of us involved with the RHI Sports Program wish every athlete and all of our fellow volunteers and managers a wonderful holiday.

May we all look back on this past year, remembering the thrill of sport, the uncertainty of competition and the blessing of victory!

Happy Holidays and a Joyous New Year to all!
