Midmark Fundraising Event Lands Major Sponsor
Premier Health sponsors 4 Miles for Heart and Health Run in Versailles
DAYTON, Ohio, July 25, 2017 — Midmark announces its newest and largest sponsor, Premier Health, for its 4 Miles for Heart and Health fundraising event. The second annual event is taking place at 10 a.m. on October 21, 2017, starting at Midmark’s Versailles campus located at 60 Vista Drive and ending at the Winery at Versailles. The running, jogging or walking event raises funds and awareness of heart disease and the importance of vascular screenings.
Former Midmark Teammate, Bob Menke of Versailles, passed away of heart disease in 2015 at the age of 38. With a healthy lifestyle and no family history, his condition went undiagnosed—a low-cost vascular screening could have saved his life. The Menke family, Midmark and Wayne HealthCare of Greenville, teamed up last year to help prevent this from happening to anyone else. The mission of the event is to help make vascular screenings more accessible to save lives and honor Menke. The first event, held in Oct. 2016, hosted 151 participants and made 186 heart tests available at a steep discount through Wayne HealthCare. Of those 186 tests, 63 follow-up appointments were recommended.
This year’s event is sponsored by Midmark, Premier Health, Independent Medical Co-op (IMCO), National Distribution and Contracting (NDC), Orthopedic Associates of SW Ohio, Darke County Wellness Challenge, Wayne HealthCare and Rocketship Sports Management, additionally the Winery at Versailles and Ghyslain Chocolatier who will offer wine, chocolate gifts and prizes to participants at the finish line.
“We are delighted to sponsor this important event, as it supports wellness outreach programs,” said Dr. Tim Markus, cardiologist at Good Samaritan Health Center-Greenville, a Premier Health location. “Encouraging and educating the community about healthy lifestyle choices will make a positive impact for everyone.”
