Heartland Half Marathon Proceeds Presented to Two Local Organization

Jamie Jahn, President of DC Multisport and the Race Director for the 2021 Heartland Half Marathon, 5K, Team Challenge & Kids Fun Run, presented checks totaling $19,061.42 split evenly between Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center’s Jenna Sermersheim, Director of Cardiac Services and to Girls on the Run Serving Southwest Indiana’s Executive Director, Sarah Leonard.

This money was raised through the Heartland Half Marathon, 5K, and Team Challenge events held on September 4 and coordinated by DC Multisport, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and wellness while giving back to the local communities.

Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center was the corporate sponsor for this event. Proceeds given to the Phillip R. Dawkins Heart & Vascular Center will be utilized for new integrative medicine services provided to cardiac patients. Past proceeds were used to purchase new equipment for the unit and educational information for a resource library for patients in cardiac rehab. With the proceeds, Girls on the Run will provide significant financial assistance to girls from low-economic backgrounds to ensure equitable and inclusive program access. As negative outcomes from the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impact girls living in poverty, GOTRSWIN recognizes its responsibility to ensure that all girls are provided access to our evidence-based programming that fosters connection and promotes positive physical and mental well-being, regardless of their financial background.
