15 Years of Living transformed into 25 Years of Giving...and Counting

The Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation, along with Bellin Health are celebrating an inspiration milestone in Northeast Wisconsin.  For 25 years, the Foundation named after Brian LaViolette has been living Brian's message, "The Journey is the Reward"

Bellin Health is special to the LaViolette Foundation as that is where Brian was born 40 years ago on January 23, 1977. And while tragedy cut his life short at the age of 15, his spirit continues to impact the lives of so many.

A short news conference and multimedia presentation will be held at Bellin College, 3201 Eaton Road, Green Bay on Thursday, January 26th at 10:00 am.  It will kick off the Brian LaViolette 25th Year Celebration and unveil our '25 Years, 25 Stories' initiative, detailing how one life can truly make a difference in the lives of thousands. 

Brian is just one of the thousands brought into this world at Bellin.  Image the impact each person has had on this world. In Brian's case, lives have been touched all around the globe. Join us to see how so many--from the nurse in the delivery room, to the latest scholarship recipient--continue to play a part in this incredible journey of rewarding others.
