MMBF is proud to announce our sponsorship of Girls on the Run! Girls on the Run inspires girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams of girls in 3rd-8th grade, developing essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event at Paul Brown Stadium on May 13, 2017. MMBF will be there to cheer them on and want you to be there too! Contact Events@TeamMeesh.org to sign up with our team!

2015 Fall Event a Success!
We would like to thank everyone for their generous support! We continue to strive to fulfill our mission statement and know it wouldn’t be possible without all of you! We’d also like to thank all of you who took the time to record a memory of Michelle in our memory booth. We will cherish them and are so thankful for your story.
We had a great event and were able to provide a $5,000 grant to Head Start (http://hcesc.org/head-start), which is an early childhood program designed to provide comprehensive services to young children and emphasizes parent engagement. The program serves children and families who are most at risk in the community and partners with local school districts to serve their low income children.
MMBF is excited to annouce our fall fundraiser!! October 17, 2015 we will be hosting an evening of fun, games, food and drink at the Courseview Pavillion at the Kings Island Golf Center in Mason
Please save the date and join us for a night of fun!

MMBF Gives Back!
Thank you! We knew how many people Michelle touched and had impacted, but the outpouring of love and support has been truly incredible. We are blessed with wonderful family & friends!
The result of all your generous donations last year allowed us to provide the first grant from the foundation in support of our mission. The grant was provided to Boys Hope Girls Hope, which is an organization that was brought to our attention through several of Michelle’s good friends. Boys Hope Girls Hope provides support for children to realize the potential that is within them and the structure needed for these children to reach their goals. After speaking to members of Boys Hope Girls Hope and learning more about what they do, we are excited to help. Find out more information @ http://www.boyshopegirlshope.org/
We are proud of this accomplishment and thank you all for helping us achieve this milestone. Together, we will continue to fulfill Michelle’s spirit of love and giving to others.
Please Save The Date & join us as the tennis girls host the foundation’s kickoff event at The Club at Harper’s Point. Enjoy heavy appetizers, drink specials, raffle, LIVE music by Mario Contardi, & more!
