Larry the Cable Guy recently held the inaugural Git-R-Done Golf Classic to raise money for local charities.  The event, which included a dinner, auction and celebrity paired round of golf, raised over $150,000.  The money will support a number of different things including the purchase of a pediatric FES bike for Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital, children’s vaccines for The People’s City Mission Free Clinic and a soon to be announced equine therapy project.“When good people meet good people, great things happen,” said Larry the Cable Guy.  “The success of The Git-R-Done Golf Classic was made possible by good people coming together for good causes.”The dinner and auction featured a replica General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard, redneck wine glasses, and used tires as décor.  Guests loved the hometown feel and the opportunity to mingle in an intimate setting with celebrities like Willie Robertson from Duck Dynasty, PGA’s Boo Weekley, Bruce Hall, Dave Amato and Bryan Hitt of REO Speedwagon, Nebraska Greats Eric Crouch and Tommie Frazier plus many others.  The evening concluded with the crowd singing along as Larry treated them to his version of C.W. McCall’s “Convoy”.The donation of a pediatric FES bike to Madonna will have a significant and immediate impact.  Physical and occupational therapists use the FES bike to improve or enhance an individual’s strength, stamina, cardiovascular function, circulation and range of motion, the muscle activation also boosts the brain’s ability to reorganize itself to compensate for injury and disease – to form new neural or brain connections and pathways, a principle of the brain is called neuroplasticity.   Specific therapies and specialized technology have been found to encourage the neuroplastic qualities of the brain. The FES bike is one of those special technologies.
