Battle of the Businesses Returns to the Reseach Park

The Miami Valley Research Park is proud to be a Service In-Kind Sponsor for the 2014 Battle of the Businesses. This is the fifth year for the Research Park to host two of the many events that support the fundraising efforts for the Special Olympics.

With the weather cooperating, good sportmanship and a competitive spirit, approximately 600 participants and supporters engaged in the Tug-of-War and Ski Team events on the large grassy area east of 1900 Founders Drive. Final supporting events will conclude within the next few days with a celebration of the participating businesses being recognized for the triumphs.

The Battle of the Businesses is the largest fund raiser for the Special Olympics of Greater Dayton. Over the past five years, this week-long event has raised $70,000 annually to sponsor Special Olympic activities.

The Research Park would like to extend a personal thank you to Park Resident, WilmerHale, for their sponsorship and involvement with this worthwhile charity.
