Crystal Run Healthcare, led by its Cardiology team, hosted a fundraiser to benefit the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day.
Providers and staff at Crystal Run Healthcare’s over 30 locations personally donated money and wore red to help raise funds and bring attention to the staggering facts around heart disease and stroke, encouraging women to take action to live longer, healthier lives. On Wear Red Day, employees had the opportunity to wear red clothing or purchase red dress pins to show their support. In total, $2,128 was raised by Crystal Run Healthcare and donated to the American Heart Association to support educational programs to increase women’s awareness about their risk for heart disease and stroke, as well as encourage heart health.
Crystal Run Healthcare has had a long-standing commitment to heart health and preventative medicine for its patients as well as the communities it serves. Year after year, Crystal Run Healthcare has united with the American Heart Association to encourage heart health by participating in Wear Red Day. In addition, Crystal Run Healthcare sponsors the WSUL/WVOS Heart-a-Thon each year, a vital fundraising event for Catskill Regional Medical Center’s Cardiac-Care and Cardio-Pulmonary Care divisions.
