Benedictine Ada Thanks Sponsors, Community for ATV Fun Run Success

The Benedictine Ada Foundation extends a huge Thank You to our 3rd Annual ATV Fun Run sponsors and supporters! We had a banner year, with 105 community members participating in this year’s Aug. 7 event at the Norman County Fairgrounds. More than $27,000 was raised – a new record! – to support new flooring to enhance resident rooms and common areas.

“As our largest fundraiser of the year, every dollar raised through the ATV Fun Run is critical in supporting our long-standing mission to provide the highest quality care to older adults in an inviting, home-like environment,” stated Cassie Visser, Housing and Foundation Director at the nonprofit Benedictine Living Community-Ada. “We are very grateful for the generosity of the greater Ada community, including our sponsors, donors, attendees, staff, volunteers and Foundation committee, who helped make this year’s event such a success.”
