Lisa's Light, was hosted in Hartford, WI to honor an Elevate team member's mom, Lisa Wise, who suffered an aneurysm on Christmas Day 2015. Lisa was always a huge supporter of all of our other charity events. The event held in October of 2016 raised $8,000 for FMDSA (Fibromuscular Dysplasia Society of America). Lisa's Light will always shine on through her family and friends but also through our Elevate team as FMDSA and aneurysm awareness has become a part of our mission!

The Power of Purple has raised over $75,000 in total over the past 4 years.
