Chair #20 - Morton Youth Baseball (MYBA)
Painted by Dr. Matt Nannie
Taking on challenges is one of Dr. Matt Nannie’s passions. Although not an artist, he couldn’t help but say yes when asked to paint a chair for the MYBA. Dr. Matt is a chiropractor at Health Solutions of Morton and has been treating patients for four years. As a husband and father, Dr. Matt loves seeing whole families come into the office. With this passion, in fall 2014, Dr. Matt had the opportunity to accept another challenge and establish a Chiropractic clinic with a group of colleagues in India. During his time there, he and his colleagues treated thousands of patients ranging from infants to seniors.
When he’s not at Health Solutions, Dr. Matt enjoys weight-training, biking, boating, hosting health workshops and spending time outdoors with his wife and young son. As he writes this he anxiously awaits the arrival of his second son.
The MYBA is an affiliate of the Morton Park District. It’s first by-laws were written in 1973. It serves close to 550 kids in the Morton area. The Executive board is comprised of 15 members while there are numerous associate directors and countless volunteers to run the park. MYBA spends an average of $453 per player involved with the program. In house players only pay around $115 for the program while most travel players pay around $400. Fundraising and volunteers are essential in maintaining our beautiful park. MYBA is grateful for its relationship with the Foundation. We were beyond excited when Dr. Matt Nannie, with Health Solutions, volunteered to be our artist for the Charity event.
