COLUMBUS, Ohio – Physical rehabilitation patients at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center will join Ohio State University Alumni band members for a ‘Beat Michigan’ pep rally at noon on Tuesday, (11/26) in the Dodd Hall gymnasium, 480 Medical Center Drive.

 

Reporters and videographers are invited to attend as Shelley Graf, Ohio State’s first female drum major and the first female drum major in the Big Ten, and a physical therapist at the Medical Center, puts on a twirling exhibition while the band plays “Hang on Sloopy” and several other Buckeye fan favorites.
