Bruegala Charities

The Bloomington-Normal Jaycees are pleased to announce the 2016 charities for #bruegala2016!

It is going to be an awesome year and we can’t wait to work with our amazing charities!  There are still many exciting announcements to come…


Archery Success!


The B-N Jaycees had a great time at our recent ID event at Select Archery. By the end of the night, we were all hitting our marks, which ranged from traditional bullseyes to 3D animal targets.  Check out the full library of photos from the fun evening.

8th Annual Tulip 5k for a Cure: Photos

For the 8th time in a row, we had a blast at our Tulip 5k for a Cure.  We witnessed another competitive group of runners, and the winners were able to take home great prizes thanks to our sponsors.  But in what might be the marquee highlight, event coordinator Katy Griesemer awarded the first Cindy K. Griesemer Memorial Award.  And once again, we were able to raise substantial donations for Siteman Cancer Center to continue their innovative Pancreatic Cancer research.

Check out photos from the event here.

Congratulations to all the award winners, we look forward to holding our 9th race next year!


ID Event: Archery

Our Individual Development event for April is scheduled!

We will be learning how to use a bow and arrow, just like all of your favorite movie heroes.  The event takes place at Select Archery this Thursday, at 6:30 P.M.  Select Archery can be found at 474 Wylie Drive, Normal, IL.

The cost is $5 per person.  That includes the archery lesson from a professional, equipment rental for the evening, and range time to practice your new bow skills.  Find more details and RSVP on our Meetup page.  We’ll see you there!


Lynn Meuser Fundraiser

As an organization, the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees make it a point to support members and past members.  We’re a close-knit group, we stay a close-knit group and we take advantage of all opportunities to do good for our friends.

Lynn Meuser, a former B-N Jaycees member, is currently in a battle with cancer on her spinal cord.  Our chapter is beginning a special fundraiser.  We’re asking members and former members to donate, via PayPal or mailed check/cash, to Lynn Meuser and her family.  The amount of donations made by members will be matched by the chapter itself, up to $1000!  So if members raise $1000, that’s $2000 that goes to the Meuser family in this difficult time.

Please visit our fundraiser page to see the details and donate.  As a leadership and community service organization, we appreciate everyone’s support of one of our own.

Doggie Easter Egg Hunt

Thank you to everyone who attended our 2nd Annual Doggie Easter Egg Hunt. We had a great time hosting our cities pups, and we were able to raise valuable donations for our local, animal centered non-profits. Check out pictures from the event here!


Tulip 5k Update

It’s April, and that means the B-N Jaycees are finalizing plans for the Tulip 5k for a Cure.  In it’s 8th year, we’re making an exciting revision to an element of the race.  This year’s t-shirt, will be a baseball tee design, but we only have a limited quantity!  Check out the image of the template below.  Now imagine it with the Tulip 5k logo on the front, and all our generous sponsor’s logos on the back.  Pretty awesome, right?



8th Annual Tulip 5k for a Cure

Hello runners, walkers and cancer fighters!  We are coming up on that time of year again where we all meet up at White Oak Park in Bloomington and give another huge boost to Pancreatic Cancer research.  The 8th Annual Tulip 5k for a Cure happens on Sunday, April 24th at 1 P.M.

The cost for entry is $25 per person.  There will be a goodie bag and tshirt for pre-registers.  You can sign up now by following the link below to access the form.  We will soon have online registration available.

We’re asking that everyone registers by April 8th so we can secure enough of the right shirt sizes for everyone.  But you can register as late as race day (even at the race itself), if need be.
