May Member Event Re-Cap


On May 21, Giving Sum members laced up their trainers and hit the road for an inspirational event featuring guests from past Giving Sum Grant finalist, Back On My Feet. Back on My Feet is a national nonprofit organization that uses running to help those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real change in their lives that results in employment and independent living. We enjoyed a 1-mile walk/run with BOMF staff and runners and learned about the innovative work BOMF is doing with the homeless community in Indianapolis.


Indy in May at the Speedway Re-Cap

Giving Sum had a grand day out at the opening of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway! Our May 11, 2013 fundraiser was a rousing success. Guests enjoyed fashionable transportation on Indy's brightest buses and were delivered to a private suite at the track for an afternoon featuring great people, food, drinks, and behind the scenes tours. Proceeds will support Giving Sum's operations and member outreach in 2013. Thanks to everyone who came out and made it such a great day!
