3 Times Brody Stephens Inspired Indy & Beyond



Gone, but never forgotten, Brody Stephens' story reached far beyond Indianapolis and deep in to the hearts of anyone who heard it. There's not a day that goes by that we don't think about this little dude.. that is why at our annual 1070 The Fan Challenge for Charity, all proceeds are benefitting Brody's favorite charity, Child Life at Riley. Invite your friends, coworkers and family & RSVP on our Facebook Event Page here!

WHEN: Friday, April 27th from 10A-7P

WHERE: Royal Pin Woodland Bowl

This is a FREE event but you must make a donation to bowl and get swag. ALL proceeds go to Child Life at Riley.


There's an infinite amount of moments that our bud, Brody Stephens inspired us here at The Fan, but we've narrowed it down to our top three fav's from Bro Bro's time here with us on Earth:


1. When Brody designed his very own shoes and, despite all the odds going against him, he donated the profits of his BrodyStrong 1’s to the Jimmy V Foundation, Riley Children’s Foundation and the Riley Cheer Guild.





2. The countless times he made you wish you were half the man he is and reminded you that you have no excuses to not be your best self every single day.

And probably made you tear up a little bit:




3. When you learned that he had been in and out of the hospital non-stop for months, his leukemia percentages had risen and he STILL managed to pass his multiplication tables! 




Inspired? Want to cry a little? Know Brody is watching from up above and want to do him proud? Join us for the Royal Pin Challenge for Charity in Memory of Brody Stephens to raise money for Child Life at Riley!


Grady and Big Joe, Dan Dakich and JMV will all be broadcasting LIVE and are looking for a little bit of bowling competition when they're not on the air. You listen to them every day, now come meet them and bowl against them in person! 

While on-site, all of our proceeds from the day will go towards the supporting Child Life at Riley. So ditch to do good on Friday, April 27th and come out to help support this great event for an even greater cause! If you make an on-site donation you will receive free bowling and FM 107.5 & 1070 The Fan custom #BrodyStrong t-shirt. Click here for more info about the event!

It may not feel like it right now with flurries still in Indy's forecast, but along with the NCAA Tournament, the First Day of Spring has rolled right by us.
Every year you sit down on Selection Sunday with your pencil (erasers necessary) and paper. Every year you troll Twitter to see if the first round gets leaked.
The Peytons Wow, what a year it's been. I'd like to thank The Fan and my friend Kevin Bowen for being on-board...
