The Muscular Dystrophy Association of Central Indiana is holding their annual Lock-Up event on Wednesday, June 4 from 11am-2pm at the Harrison Lake Country Club. The event is a chance for business leaders in the community to use their professional and personal influence to raise funds for Central Indiana families affected by muscle disease. It is also a great event for networking with other key business leaders and gaining exposure for your company.
MDA of Central Indiana is currently accepting nominations for influential business leaders that should be recognized for their achievements and are known for having big hearts. All nominations should be emailed to Indianapolis@mdausa.org or mailed to 9100 Purdue Road, Suite 203 Indianapolis, IN 46268.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for 43 different neuromuscular diseases such as muscular dystrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Lou Gehrig’s disease. We do so by funding worldwide research; by providing comprehensive health care services and support to MDA families nationwide; and by rallying communities to fight back through advocacy, fundraising, and local engagement.
Locally, the MDA of Central Indiana located in Indianapolis, helps to raise funds that support the 1,100 local families living with muscle disease. Of every dollar raised, 77 cents goes directly back to services, research, and education. The local services we provide include MDA clinic visits and flu shots, annual repairs of durable medical equipment, support groups for patients and caregivers, therapy consultation, and one week summer camp for ages 6-17.
Alex Star, a first generation survivor, and his nephew, Tibor Klopfer, a second generation survivor, put a human face on events and statistics of WW II by recounting experiences of their Hungarian Jewish family. Alex was a young teen when war broke out and for a while hid out in the countryside until he was captured and sent to labor camps. In July of 1944, Tibor’s mother (Alex’s older sister), was deported from a rural ghetto in Hungary to Auschwitz-Birkenau. She was liberated at the end of the war from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Tibor’s father lost all of his immediate family including his first wife and two daughters. He spent much of the war in Hungarian and German forced labor camps before being liberated from Dachau at the end of the war. Our speakers come to us through the Bureau of Jewish Education in Indianapolis.

Mr. Steffy’s talk will focus on adding arts education to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) education to create STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math). STEAM is a movement initially championed by the Rhode Island School of Art and Design (RISD) that is nowwidely adopted by other educational institutions, corporations, and individuals. The goal of adding Arts education to the traditional STEM model is to foster true innovation that comes from combining the mind of a scientist with that of a designer.
The public is invited to attend the annual report to the community. For additional information, please visit www.artsincolumbus.org.
The Columbus Area Arts Council is a public, not-for-profit corporation supported by private donations, the City of Columbus, the State of Indiana through the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
