(MINOT, ND) – The Trinity Health Auxiliary has declared May 22nd Healthy Hearts Day, with two events planned to help people live heart healthier lives.
A Brunch Symposium will begin at 9 a.m. at the Holiday Inn Riverside, with cardiothoracic surgeon C. Etta Tabe, MD, and Cardiopulmonary Rehab nurse Marlys Fisher, RN, presenting the latest information on prevention and treatment of heart disease. Tickets for the brunch are $15 per person.
At 11 a.m. registration will get underway for a men’s and women’s Golf Scramble at Vardon Golf Club. Tee time is 12 p.m. The Golf Scramble will offer major prizes including airline tickets, a set of Callaway irons, a flat screen TV, and $25,000 to anyone who shoots a hole-in-one. Golf fees are $450 per team of four and include two golf carts.
Proceeds from both events will go to support the Auxiliary’s Healthy Hearts Club, a source of education and support for heart patients or anyone interested in pursuing a heart healthy lifestyle.
‘Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, killing 610,000 Americans every year,’ said Sherry Maragos, Director of Volunteer Services. ‘Our purpose is to provide support and education to people who’ve suffered a heart event or are simply interested in making heart healthy choices.’
