East Penn Foot and Ankle Associates was pleased to be a part of The Ben Event on July 19 and 20 in Macungie, PA. The Ben Event is a yearly fundraiser for special needs teens which includes a Special Olympics softball game and swim meet, presentation of the Ben Yorgey Memorial Awards, and the “Hey I Know You” 5K run and 1/2 mile kids’ run.
Dr Adam Teichman of EPFAA was on hand to present a check for $250 to the foundation. Lehigh Valley IronPigs Ball Girls Lauren Mateyak and Justine Levchak threw out the first pitch at the softball game and helped out Special Olympics athletes during the game. The Ball Girls also had some fun launching “Hey I Know You” t-shirts into the crowd, and posed for lots of pics after the game with spectators and Special Olympics athletes.
