Team Up with Jane Phillips Medical Center to Fight the No. 1 Killer
BARTLESVILLE, OKLA. (March 22, 2018) —Jane Phillips Medical Center and St. John Clinic Cardiology invite you to help fight the No. 1 killer in Washington and Osage counties by participating in the 2018 Community Heart 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, May 19. The goal of the event is an awareness of cardiac health, fitness and community involvement.
The event will be held at St. John Clinic Cardiology, 3460 S.E. Frank Phillips Blvd., Bartlesville, on the campus of Jane Phillips Medical Center. Registration begins at 8 a.m. The 5K run begins at 9 a.m. and the 1-mile fun run/walk will begin shortly thereafter. An awards ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Medals will be given to first, second, and third place winners in the men’s and women’s divisions. Top fundraising teams will also be recognized.
“We took an extra step this year and had our 5K course certified, so we’re hoping more area running enthusiasts will join us this year,” said Bluestem Medical Foundation Executive Director Mike Wilt. “All of the money raised will benefit the Bluestem Medical Foundation, which supports the mission of Jane Phillips Medical Center,” said Wilt. “And that mission includes providing quality cardiovascular and stroke care. Money raised in Bartlesville will remain in Bartlesville.”
Individuals and company teams alike are invited to take part in this event by having a walking team, running team, or a team that just wants to come out and support cardiovascular care in Bartlesville.
“Some participants are survivors of heart disease or stroke,” Wilt said. “Many participants run or walk in honor of or in memory of a friend or family member.”
Cost for the 5K run is a $25 or more donation per person and includes a race T-shirt if paid by April 27. If you would like to register as a runner, please contact Ladona Harrison at firstname.lastname@example.org or 918-331-1431 or click here for brochure.
