Why We Ride

Team IRON EAGLES is a group of friends and family dedicated to fighting Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Gumball/Jawbreaker Machine Earnings

Our best fundraiser to date is our gumball/jawbreaker machine, Old Yeller.  Currently it resides at Water Gardens Theater in Pleasant Grove, Utah (across from Macey's).  Here is a picture of it in it's current home and a list of it's earnings.  This list will be updated at the beginning of each month when we collect the jawbreaker money.  Big THANKS again to WATER GARDENS THEATER in PG!!  A great place to watch movies!  $3 movie ticket and concessions for $1, $2 and $3.  Seriously.  Order tickets online without an online service fee.  Reserve seating.  LOVE IT!  And, as an added bonus, you can buy a yummy jawbreaker for a mere 25 cents and help people afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis :-)  Yahoo!

Note: In November 2011 Old Yeller became a jawbreaker machine.  When it was a gumball machine the gumballs were donated.  Now we buy our own jawbreakers.  It costs us $93.96 for 1700 jawbreakers.  At 25 cents per jawbreaker we will still be able to raise $331.04 for every 1700 jawbreakers sold.  To keep things completely transparent we will mark, on the list above, the money spent on jawbreakers in red.
