“There are very few people, businesses and organizations that make it to the centennial category, which is why we don’t take one moment – or one person – for granted,” said Ann Murtlow, president and CEO of United Way of Central Indiana. “Because of our donors, partner agencies, volunteers and advocates, United Way has stood the test of time and made an impact on millions of residents, families and children in our community. Now, more than any time in recent history, Living United is key to ensuring that our community is one in which everyone can thrive. And for the eighth year, we are grateful to the Indianapolis Colts for inviting us to share their Monument Circle kickoff stage with us!”
