A Poker Run with prizes is included in the day’s activities as well.  All proceeds from the events go to support Project Lifesaver of Hamilton County.

Project Lifesaver is a program designed to assist in locating individuals who are potentially at risk due to wandering.  Clients of Project Lifesaver include those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Autism, Down Syndrome along with those who are prone to wandering away from safety.  Through funds raised from events like the Summer Bash, Project Lifesaver is able to provide clients at no cost with a wristband style radio transmitter that emits a silent signal that can be tracked quickly and efficiently.  In nearly 3,000 cases nationwide, Project Lifesaver has been able to locate clients in an average time of less than 30 minutes with no serious injuries or deaths reported.  Hamilton County currently has five (5) fire agencies along with the Sheriff’s Office trained in using Project Lifesaver technology.

Project Lifesaver is a not-for-profit organization that depends on grants, donations, and fundraising efforts so there is no cost to taxpayers or clients.  For more information on enrolling a loved one or to become active in Project Lifesaver, call 317-776-6757 or project.lifesaver@hamiltoncounty.in.gov.
