The first annual Heart to Heart 5K isn’t you typical road race. In addition to serving as a fundraiser for The Good Samaritan Clinics in Pella and Knoxville, the race is a way for people recovering from heart problems to continue improving their heart health. Gene Schmitz, Rehabilitation Director at Pella Regional Health Center says the event is a good way for patients to continue their rehab with the support of their fellow patients. Stephany Kerr, a co chair for the event adds this is more than a chance for patients to get a good workout, but also for the community to support the work done by the Good Samaritan Clinics. Here’s the registration information.
