IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - 3/18/20
To all of our sponsors, attendees, and volunteers -
On Tuesday, March 17, 2020, Governor Reynolds of Iowa announced that all bars, casinos, and mass gatherings of more than 10 people close until the “termination of this COVID-19 disaster”.
After careful consideration, the HusomeStrong Foundation's event committee felt the most prudent thing to do is to cancel our Limb-It-Less Possibilities dinner and fundraiser scheduled for April 30, 2020.
To all the small businesses in the Cedar Valley who have supported us in the past, we feel your pain. In consideration of your past support, we felt the need to give you time to recover from the financial impact this crisis may cause you.
To our sponsors, we will be reaching out to provide some options for your financial support. We are currently researching possible dates for the 2021 event, and hope you will continue to support our mission when we resume this annual event next year.
To our community, please make sure you continue to support our local businesses during this unprecedented crisis because together we can make a difference!
If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to email Steve Husome at firstname.lastname@example.org

Andy Yohe is a Bettendorf, IA. native and three-time Paralympian winning two gold medals and one bronze medal for the men’s USA sled hockey team. In 1994 Andy lost both of his legs in a train accident. This tragedy didn’t stop Andy from playing a game he loved as a youth. The accident changed his course in life but never deterred him from pursuing his dream of competing for his country. Nearly ten years after his accident, Andy began playing sled hockey with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) Blackhawks and was a member of the 2006 USA bronze medal team. Yohe returned four years later, and along with his USA teammates, they captured the gold medal in 2010. Andy returned again in 2014, and as the team captain, team USA won the gold medal for the second consecutive time. Andy and his wife Katie reside in Bettendorf with their two children Abby and Levi.
