If you follow JMF on social media, you’ve likely seen photos from our programs. Photos that show staff members implementing disABILITY Awareness curriculum in schools, photos of Joseph Maley Friends puppeteers performing skits, and photos that show athletes of ALL abilities learning and laughing alongside their Joseph Maley Fitness volunteer mentor.
For our first board member blog post of the month, we’d like to introduce Tim Weber. Tim is an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in trauma, and works within the orthopaedic group, OrthoIndy. He is a graduate of Michigan State University, and has helped JMF develop our run2gether program. Keep reading to learn why Tim supports JMF, and why he thinks others should too.
April is National Volunteer Month, and as the month winds down, the Joseph Maley Foundation would like to provide our audience with a full list of upcoming volunteer opportunities. Keep reading to learn more about the volunteer needs for each of our programs, as well as our upcoming events.
The Joseph Maley Foundation is currently hosting two spring-semester interns from the University of Indianapolis. Kirby Jones and Niki Schath are both members of the Class of 2018 who participate in cheerleading, among many other extracurricular pursuits. Both Kirby and Niki decided to continue their internship experience through the summer before they move on to graduate school; we are happy to keep them as part of our JMF family a bit longer! We invite you to get to know them more in this week’s blog.
