Part of the Norma J. Ross Youth Foundation, which was established in the memory of the late Norma Jean Ross, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2010. Funds for the Foundation come from Donations, Fundraising Events, and Pink Ribbon Driven Merchandise which is adorned with the popular Pink Ribbon Driven logo. These proceeds give the foundation the ability to continue its mission of supporting youth in our community, sponsoring programs that aid breast cancer patients, and funding and advocating for organizations that continue to do breast cancer research.
The Norma J. Ross Pink Ribbon Driven Team has raised over $175,000 for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk (Dayton, OH). This couldn’t have been accomplished without partners and supporters like you. For more information on Pink Ribbon Driven visit www.pinkribbondriven.org or call Bob Ross Auto Group at (937) 433-0990.

The Miami Valley Firefighter/EMS Memorial Association started out as a group dedicated to preserving the memory of Firefighters and EMS responders who lost their lives in the Line of Duty in our nine county region. What began in 1990 as an annual Memorial service turned into a massive effort to construct a fitting Memorial to these fallen heroes. Following a campaign begun in 2006 and after raising nearly $100.000.00 the Miami Valley Firefighter/EMS Memorial was completed and dedicated on October 31, 2010. The Memorial Fund now serves maintenance and up-keep of the Memorial structures and surrounding area, as well as funding an annual Memorial Service to remember those Fire/ EMS members who lost their lives protecting our communities. Sadly, since the dedication of the Memorial in 2010, there have been three name plates added to the Main panel of the Memorial and one more is to be added in 2015. The Memorial has become a quiet place of reflection and reaffirmation for our local Fire/EMS members as well as a source of comfort to the many families whose loved one’s names are on the Memorial’ panels. Stubbs Memorial Park in Centerville is the home of the Memorial and hosts over 150,000 visitors each year and the Memorial is unique nationwide given the fact that it is one of very few multi-jurisdictional Emergency Services Memorials in the country, representing now 79 Line of Duty Deaths in our nine county region. The Memorial fund is a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. For more information, visit www.mvmemorial.org
