Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates recently presented a $3,000 donation to the American Cancer Society's Boardman Relay for Life as the result of a promotion it coordinated with Youngstown State University's football program.
As part of its "Doctor's Order" promotion, Youngstown Orthopaedic donated $300 for every time a YSU football player rushed for 100 yards or more in a game. During a successful season that saw the team improve on its 2010 record by three games, YSU backs eclipsed 100 yards on 10 occasions, including eight by leading rusher Jamaine Cook. Adaris Bellamy and Jordan Thompson each had one, 100-plus yard performance.

"We look forward to sponsoring this program again next year."
