Dear friends of the Memorial Bone & Joint Research Foundation!

We are so grateful for your support of our 2017 golf tournament, the 1st Ron Ivy Classic. You, our sponsors and guests, have made this event a huge success, with a record number of participating teams and donations. We hope everyone enjoyed a fun day of golfing, mingling, and celebrating Ron Ivy’s life. We were delighted to see so many familiar faces and meet so many new ones.

As the foundation’s president Dr. Kreuzer remarked on tournament day, Ron Ivy has always been our biggest supporter, and even now, he still impacts our lives and supports our cause in the most positive way.

We would like to give special thanks to the Ivy family for their generosity and utmost support of our tournament, especially during these difficult times.

A huge “thank you” goes out to this year’s tournament underwriter, Castex Energy. Without your help and support, we could not have made this tournament the success it was.

The funds raised at the tournament will help the researchers at Memorial Bone & Joint Research Foundation finish current projects and initiate new studies related to the treatment of osteoarthritis. This includes the evaluation of robotic surgery for improved accuracy, the long-term assessment of new implant designs for improved durability, or the use of novel, non-surgical methods to improve quality of life and pain of patients living with osteoarthritis.
