Ronny Maher Memorial
Polo Match

Benefits R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at The University of Maryland Medical Center

As you saw on the home page this event is in memory of my father, Ronny Maher.  He was an avid foxhunter his entire life but polo hit him like a ton of bricks at 60 years of age. He loved chasing that little white ball. That is why we have a polo game for him.

The event is for the benefit of “Shock Trauma” formally—the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.  “Shock Trauma” was the brainchild of Dr. R Adams Cowley, he recognized the “Golden Hour.” It is that period of time after a traumatic injury before shock settles in and causes more damage.  Shock Trauma is located at the University of Maryland Medical Center. It was here that Ronny was flown after he suffered a fall fox hunting.  They were phenomenal with him and his family.  The doctors, nurses, and staff were there at every turn to help them.  The doctors and nurses became a part of his extended family.
