SAVE THE DATE 
Our Women's Golf Outing is on the horizon!
 
 
We unfortunately were unable to host our women's golf outing in 2020 due to the pandemic. This year, however, we are excited to announce that with proper precautions and a steady decrease in COVID numbers, we are once again hosting the UCPAIndy Women's Golf Outing.
 
The event is tentatively scheduled for Monday, September 20, 2021. Please mark your calenders and be on the lookout for more announcements from us regarding the fundraising event.
 

 
Mission Moments 
Check out what UCPAIndy is doing in the community
 
Beth from Bedford reached out to UCPAIndy to ask about the COVID vaccine for her son, Adam, who is 26. At the time, the vaccine was only available for Hoosiers 50 and over and/or with certain medical conditions. Fortunately, cerebral palsy is one of the diagnoses that makes you eligible. We were able to help Beth find vaccine sites in Bedford and determine what paperwork she should take with her.
 
Emily lives in Tipton and uses a manual chair when she is in her home. She was recently vaccinated and was excited to be around other people again. Her chair was 11 years old and was showing its age. We funded the purchase of a new chair for Emily. She is looking forward to going shopping and participating in her local book club.
