Team Trainer Ipson, Goes Above and Beyond


April 11, 2018 - Cedar Rapids, Iowa


RoughRider Team Trainer Chris Ipson was recently recognized for his commitment to excellence in carrying out the mission of St. Luke’s Hospital by being named the St. Luke’s Living the Mission Award recipient.


Ipson, was surprised by members of St. Lukes and the RoughRiders staff on Tuesday.  He received a certificate, a check for $1000 and an invitation to an awards ceremony later this month where he will be recognized for his professionalism and willingness to go above and beyond what is required of him on a daily basis.


“Chris embodies what St. Luke’s is all about.  He not only takes great care of the players every day, but has also taken on the duties of taking care of their equipment, and even stayed behind with a player when an injury forced him to be hospitalized on a road trip,” remarked Ted Townsend, CEO of St. Luke’s Hospital.


Earlier this season, RoughRider player Jason Polin was injured in a game at Des Moines.  Without hesitation, Ipson volunteered to stay behind with the player in the hospital until his father could arrive to be with him.
