Hankey Law Office Team Installs Garden at Pathway

A team of 12 members of Hankey Law Office arrived at Pathway the morning of July 17th to create a Community Gathering Space complete with fire pit, solar lights, Adirondack chairs, stump stools, a new gas grill and more! They trimmed out the space with lawn timbers, filled it with pea gravel and spruced up the porch, yard and swing, with plants and pillows.

Thank you to everyone who partook in this awesome experience!

Having a sense of community encourages and supports many aspects of personal change and overall health. Community support is essential for maintaining and enjoying sobriety. It is vital for immediate and long-term mental health.

The Hankey Law Office Walks to Help End Epilepsy

Our office was happy to participate in the 2014 Walk/Run to End Epilepsy at Ft. Harrison Park in Indianapolis on June 21. Thankfully, the weather was perfect for this year’s event and the turnout was great.

The annual walk, which started in Indianapolis in 2008, has grown each year and has expanded to include walks in other areas of the state. For 2014, a timed run was also added, along with face painting and other family-friendly activities.

Event organizers hope the annual events increase awareness about epilepsy, raise money to fund research for a cure, and allow those affected by epilepsy to rally together.

This year’s participants included those living with seizures and their caregivers, doctors, nurses and other health care professionals as well as government leaders, Epilepsy Foundation staff and volunteers, corporate teams like ours, and members of the general public that joined the fight to end epilepsy.

Epilepsy is a neurological condition that affects the nervous system and is known to cause seizures. Those seizures are caused by disturbances in the electrical activity of the brain and may be related to a brain injury or genetics, but often the cause is unknown.

About 65 million people worldwide and 2 million Americans have epilepsy. About 1 in 26 people in the U.S. will develop epilepsy at some point in their life. One-third of those live with uncontrollable seizures because no current treatment works for them.

Hankey Law Office Participates in 2014 Indiana Black Expo Annual Summer Celebration (IBE)

image1The Hankey Law Office was happy to participate in the 2014 Indiana Black Expo Annual Summer Celebration (IBE). The Summer Celebration gave us an opportunity to connect with our community by participating as an educational exhibitor.

As an exhibitor to IBE, we help the organization continue to deliver year-round youth and family programs and events to better serve our community. Our booth was focused on disability and injury-related education for those who unfortunately have experienced that first-hand. We provided literature, bottle openers, ink pens and an array of other goodies. Having the opportunity to discuss real issues with real people is invaluable for our office. Hopefully you’ll never need us, but if you do we want to make sure Hoosiers understand their injury-related rights.

This was the first year for the Hankey Law Office to participate in the Indiana Black Expo. We enjoyed meeting so many great people and look forward to participating in 2015!

4th Annual Columbus Indiana Out of the Darkness Campus Walk for Suicide Prevention


Attorney Stacy J. Crider with the Hankey Law Office and her family recently participated in the 4th Annual Columbus Indiana Out of the Darkness Campus Walk for Suicide Prevention, an event that raises money for suicide prevention. The money raised through this fundraiser is used in a number of ways, including training first responders, funding support groups, funding research on mental illness, and for other important programs and services.

Crider and her family have participated in this event every year since it was first started, as they have a personal connection to the family of the woman who organizes the event. This year’s event has so far raised over $12,000 of its $15,000 target, and people still have time to donate. Donations will be accepted until June 30th, and individuals who are interested in donating can click here to make a donation.

2014 Muscular Dystrophy Association of Central Indiana Summer Camp

thumbnail (2)
On March 6, 2014 the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School Women’s Caucus hosted the 37th annual Women’s Caucus Auction. The auction proceeds benefited the MDA of Central Indiana Summer Camp.

The MDA summer camp is a week for children with muscle disease to feel normal and experience activities that they may never get to do anywhere else! It costs $800 to send one child to camp for a week. This cost includes their medical care, food, lodging and any other special needs they may have.

At the Hankey Law Office, we dedicate our time and practice to representing disabled adults and children. In an effort to give back, we donated $1000, enough to send one child to camp on us! At camp, kids with neuromuscular disease discover a world created specifically for them, and meet many other kids sharing the same needs and experiences. MDA campers dream about summer camp all year and often say it’s better than Christmas; some even say it’s changed their lives. Almost all campers agree that it’s “the best week of the year.” We hope our small contribution allows one child to have the week of their life!

This year, the auction brought in $18,530, which far exceeded its original goal of $10,000. The $18,530 is the equivalent to the cost of sending 23 kids to MDA’s annual summer camp, which is where the funds will be directed.

The Hankey Law Office is honored to have had the opportunity to support this important organization by donating food to their food pantry and by sponsoring two Indianapolis children to attend WNM’s summer camp in 2012.

Walk for Wishes

Walk for Wishes® is a one- or three-mile walk that works to raise money to grant the wishes of children who are facing life threatening illnesses. This year, the Hankey Law Office was able to participate in this event by providing a team of walkers, manning a water stop along the walk, and donating $500 to Walk for Wishes in support of Make-A-Wish®.
