2023 Leaders of the Future Scholarship

Our Scholarship program has been an important pipeline for developing new members and future leaders for Impact 100, including four current members of the Board of Directors. Many others have continued as members and have provided their leadership in important positions on our Focus Area Committees, Marketing, Membership, and other Board committees. With this in mind, the Board changed the name of the program to the Leaders of the Future Scholarship program. The new name is official with kick-off of the 2023 Leaders of the Future Scholarship Program on October 17, 2022.

You can learn more about the Leaders of the Future Scholarship, including eligibility requirements, here.

OrthoIndy Foundation

NeuroHope, a nonprofit rehabilitation and wellness center for people recovering from neurologic injuries, has received a $1 million grant from the OrthoIndy Foundation to expand its continued care programs for spinal cord injury, brain injury and stroke. As part of the expansion, NeuroHope has added staff, operating space, and opened an adaptive fitness center so people living with neurologic conditions can have affordable access to long-term rehabilitation programs when they leave the hospital. You can read the full press release on the grant here.

NeuroHope also provided an update on the Impact 100 Wellness Center: “Just want to share with you – signage is up, all equipment in place, and the “Impact 100 Wellness Center” is Open at NeuroHope!

We already have 30+ of our 95 patients enrolled in the wellness program, which now features open gym and supervised gym access to the “Impact 100 Wellness Center”, and daily group strength and cardio classes!
