Walking and Fishing for Your Heart
Posted In: Uncategorized
On June 4th, 2015 little anglers and older fisherman went out to the fishing pond at KHH to have fun and raise money for the Sedgwick County Heart Association. Joanna Grant RN, Clinical Documentation Specialist, coordinated the early evening activities which began at 5:30 PM. “We’ve had two or three prior fishing benefits. This year we had kids from less than five years of age to young adults.” Approximately, one-hundred KHH staffers, kids and families participated and raised greater than $700 dollars for the heart association.
The Sedgwick County Heart Association, Heart Walk, was again held at Wichita State University on Saturday, June 13th. Forty KHH staff and their families walked. Their tee shirts were uniquely inscribed with a cardiac theme for the day, “You mustache for your heart!” Each KHH participant and their family also wore a mustache to complement their tee shirts. Joyce Heismeyer, COO and a co-captain for KHH, felt “that everybody had a great time and it is always a great cause to support.” Teresa Wolfe, Director of Human Resources and Informatics at KHH, was a co-captain and added, “KHH always supports the Heart Walk and this year was no different.” On Monday, June 15th, KHH presented a check for $2,143 to the Sedgwick County Heart Association which was raised through Heart Walk participants and on-line giving for this year’s benefit.
