2019 Babar & Haris Suleman Memorial Soccer Festival! @ Al and Jan Barker Sports Complex
Jul 20 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

On July 20, 2019, we will be celebrating the Babar & Haris Suleman Memorial Soccer Festival. My family and I have had the immense pleasure of coordinating this event for the past four years. With the help of our friends and community, we have kept the story and spirit of Babar and Haris alive, while raising money for a cause dear to their hearts. Thank you all for joinining us in this journey over the years. But this is not the end. We hope you will continue to remember Babar and Haris, continue to be inspired by their story, and in turn, inspire others to make a change as well. Thank you for all you have done, and as always, remember to #LiveLikeHaris.

-Hiba Suleman

On June 19, 2014, the father-and-son team took off from Greenwood, Indiana to begin their flight around the world to raise awareness and funds for education. On July 23, 2014, just two days short of returning home, their journey came to a tragic end.

The Babar & Haris Suleman Memorial Soccer Festival celebrates their legacies, love of soccer, and desire to give back to education and the community. The anniversary of the tragic accident has been turned into a successful, positive community event that has hosted 90 players and over 300 spectators in its first year. The proceeds from the event (over $3,000 last year) go to the Haris Suleman Memorial Scholarship at Plainfield High School where Haris attended.

The Babar & Haris Suleman Soccer Festival is more than just a fun 5v5 soccer tournament, it is becoming a community event for all ages. Money raised from the festival goes to the Haris Suleman Memorial Scholarship Fund at Plainfield High School where Haris attended school.

This year’s festival will be a little different…we will focus solely on the thing that brought our community together when my dad was coach, and when my brother was a teammate: soccer. We ask Spectators to donate what they can, buy t-shirts to show support, and overall, support education in my brother’s name.

Thank you for your support and we’ll see you on the field!

Indianapolis is where she learned to use her writing to deal with growing up in the midwest as a bisexual, biracial daughter of an immigrant. She is the founder and host of VOCAB.

Humanness: A Workshop on Human Connection @ The Yoga Studio
Aug 9 @ 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Humanness: A Workshop on Human Connection @ The Yoga Studio | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

Humanness: A Workshop on Human Connection

Come experience a transformational and playful journey into the heart of connection and how it can be a catalyst for heart-opening, soul-energizing, and emotional healing.

Join Kara Baruzzini for an evening of large group, heart-opening activities meant to deepen your connection with other like-minded people. Experience the life-changing joy of recognizing yourself in others, opening your mind, and meeting strangers with a level of vulnerability that will leave you feeling powerful, creative, and high on life. Through getting outside of your normal box of comfort you realize your true potential.

This workshop is intended to create waves of positivity through light-heartedness, play, and deep connection. It is a training ground for the human capacity to ripple out into the world and create a more loving and understanding world to live in.

We’re creating a movement where due to technology, separation, and fear we have noticed stagnicity. & you can be the force that gets it to move just by showing up.

About Kara:

Kara is a conscious entrepreneur and lightworker currently residing in Miami. She has studied meditation in the mountains of Colombia, runs a yearly retreat to Costa Rica, and teaches a style of yoga that postures come second to connection.

There was never one catastrophic event that inspired her to her path of human connection as a healing modality, but rather an accumulation of many. Growing up unable to cope in a healthy way and oftentimes being absorbed in technology lead her to her own isolation. Through 10 eye-opening days at a silent meditation retreat, she was forced to put her technology, work, and everything that she believed was making her a productive member of society aside to realize that she was experiencing and contributing to an epidemic of numbness. This awakening led her to shed many fears of intimacy and view interactions as much more than plainly transactional. Now on a path to continue healing herself and others, Kara is on a mission to deepen her connections with humans and facilitate more authentic relationships for others as well.

Event Schedule:

7:00 :: Doors open

7:30pm – 9:30pm :: Human Connection Workshop

9:30pm – 11pm: Mingle + Food and Drink

Price: $30 // $40 at the door
