It is only 6 days until Giving Hearts Day
and 8 days until the Pedaling for Possibilities event! 

Giving Hearts Day logo which reads, "DMF Dakota Medical Foundation presents Giving Hearts Day.  impactgiveback.org February 11. 2016."

Giving Hearts Day is the biggest charity giving day of the year in North Dakota. Because donations of $10 or more are matched, it is a great day for donors to multiply the results of their giving. For 24 hours on Giving Hearts Day, gifts will be matched dollar for dollar, up to at least $4,000, and far beyond. Because of this, IPAT will be participating in Giving Hearts Day on Thursday, February 11th, 2016, to raise dollars that will go directly towards our Pedaling for Possibilities fund.

Pedaling for Possibilities funds are payer of last resort that provide dollars so that North Dakotans, and individuals who reside in the Red River Valley, with disabilities can acquire funds to purchase assistive technology to be more independent and successful!
