This year, we joined Circle 100 to purchase a Biodex Treadmill with Bodyweight System for physical therapy. Because both clubs raised record amounts, two additional pieces of equipment were requested and purchased for physical therapy: a standard exercise bike for $499 and cuffs for blood flow restriction therapy to help those recovering from surgery or injury strengthen their muscles, reduce pain, and heal faster.
The Men’s Guild 100 was formed in 2015 and is a group of men who meet once a year, donate a check for $100, and decide what to do with the money they raise. In 2015, they raised $8,700 towards new surgical equipment for orthopedic surgery; in 2016, $9,600 was raised for three Stair Chairs to help emergency medical staff safely transport emergency patients up and downstairs; in 2017, they raised $10,900 for a mechanical lift for the EMS department to help transport patients into a waiting ambulance faster. In 2018, the men raised $10,500 for equipment and accessories for the ambulances to provide more care en route to the hospital.
