LIMA – Want to see free video of former heavyweight champion Buster Douglas in Lima over the holidays, coaching alongside kids from all over the state at Lima’s own Southside Spartan’s Boxing Gym’s holiday tournament? Or a video showcase of the thriving children of the Mizpah Center? Or Lima’s first Holistic Expo last Fall? Or even an 2016 Olympic qualifier who calls “The Bean” (Lima) his home town?

“Heartland Heroes” from Lima/Allen County are profiled in the first video from The Heartland Image Foundation’s 2015 Year-In-Review.

The video showcases five teasers of potential documentaries, featuring digital HD video shot by the pro bono Heartland Image tech team last year. The foundation hopes the “Heartland Heroes” campaign will be an ongoing showcase of the people and causes that make Lima/Allen County unique and worthwhile. 

The video and other community-focused content may also appear on a Time Warner Video On Demand channel called “Lima’s Own…” pending underwriting from area donors to the Heartland Image Foundation.

“Heartland Heroes” is part of a new year’s fund raising launch of positive image HD videos about Lima/Allen County. Other fund raising videos that will follow in January include a “Community Events Archive 2015 Teaser” video that showcases Makerfest 2015, “A Night At The Museum” and the Lima Young Professional’s 2015 Illy Awards. A third video will tease potential documentaries that showcase the region’s “Rich Arts & History!” with topics that include “The True Story of Fort Amanda” and “How To Be A Historical Re-Enactor!”

The Heartland Image Foundation is an IRS determined 501(c)3 non-profit Public Charity, based in Lima with accounting services from Rea & Associates on Shawnee Rd. To donate and help get “Heartland Heroes” and other Lima-positive content like “Lima Service Clubs Unite” on Time Warner Cable On Demand, donors and sponsors can contact the foundation through HeartlandImage.org.
