Diabetes Education provides low-cost or free educational assistance to people with diabetes. Bariatric exercise provides an opportunity for exercise to patients looking to improve their health and achieve weight loss goals.
“We are truly overwhelmed by the generosity and enthusiasm of our community.” said Jarrett Stull, executive director of Memorial Health Foundation.
Stull thanked the community for its support.

Physician Assistant Chad Schoen won the men’s category, and Amber Tibay won the women’s category in a close contest. Young student Noah Zacharias won the one-mile race with a time of 6 minutes, 51.58 seconds.
