Improving Athlete Health in Terre Haute
Today we celebrated the ribbon cutting for the LaVern Gibson Championship Cross County Course climate controlled athletic medical building. Community leaders gathered alongside Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch to cut the ribbon, marking the official opening.
“The climate-controlled athletic medical building is such a progressive and leading way to care for the athletes that run this renowned course,” stated David Patterson, Executive Director of the Terre Haute Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We have athletes who compete on this course at local, state and national levels. Some compete when it’s snowing, some compete in extremely hot temperatures. This facility provides a space for athletes to be assessed out of the elements, out of spectator sight, and quite simply, comfortably.”
The athletic medical building, funded by the Indiana Destination Development Corporation’s (IDDC) Destination Development grant with matching funds from the Terre Haute Convention and Visitors Bureau, will serve tens of thousands of runners across the nation who visit the course annually.
The LaVern Gibson Championship Cross County Course is a true asset to the Terre Haute community and this new medical building will help athletic trainers and other medical personnel better serve the athletes.
