Support WSUL/WVOS Heart-A-Thon Annual Event Friday February 23rd at CRMC

The 40th annual WSUL/WVOS Heart-A-Thon will take place this Friday, February 23rd at the Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) from 6 AM to 7 PM. Everyone in Sullivan County should participate.

Sullivan County is rated one of the unhealthiest Counties in New York State and we must all do our part in turning things around.

Cardiovascular disease claims an alarming number of death in our county every year, and reason enough why we should all take part in this worthwhile event.

Many respected television news magazines and talk shows have devoted entire shows to heart disease in recent weeks because it remains the number one killer in America.

All the monies raised in the WSUL/WVOS Heart-A-Thon stays right here in Sullivan County.

This year the funds raised will help to purchase a state of the art Simulated Heart Mannequin, Portable Transport Monitor and a BiPAP Machine used to relieve symptoms associated with obstructive sleep apnea. 

In addition, funds raised will go to healthy heart educational programs as part of the initiative to improve the awareness and the overall health of Sullivan County.  This equipment will help to save many lives and be a help in treating patients with heart disease in the future. 

A very special segment of this year’s event is that the 4:30 – 5:30 PM hour has been designated to honor the memory Barry Foster. 

Barry was a lifelong resident of Sullivan County who passed away in April of 2013.  Barry was an educator in Livingston Manor, Liberty, Fallsburg, Delaware Valley and Pine Bush touching many youngsters lives. 

He was an active member of the community where he was a member of the Livingston Manor Rotary Club, and Board of Education, Assistant District Governor of Region 5 in Rotary District 7210, and a Board of Director at the Roscoe Nursing Home and the Shandelee Music Festival. 

Barry participated in the 98.3 WSUL Heartathon every year for over 30 years as a Livingston Manor Rotarian.  He was a caring, generous person who always had a joke to tell and was always there to help if there was someone in need. 

Heart disease does not discriminate, slowly destroying the lives of our children and friends. Heart disease knows no love. While we cannot change these alarming strong truths, we can continue to support the educational programs to reduce the risk of heart disease and to encourage the advancement of important research that will speed up the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease and to fund the Cardio-Pulmonary Department of the Catskill Regional Medical Center of Harris and Callicoon. Pledges of any amount will gladly be accepted!

I am aware that Sullivan County is filled with many meaningful charitable events.  Whether health related or civic minded, we have dedicated volunteers who collect donations in every way imaginable.

There are special walks, runs, dinners, raffles, and marathons seeking our pledges. Let us not forget all the mail and phone calls we receive from organizations requesting monies.

True, sometimes it seems as if everyone is asking us for money. We also must be careful of charitable scams and solicitations that go to pay salaries instead of fully funding a charitable cause. That is why we should all consider local events and local organizations first.

It is vital that we show CRMC our support. Pledging a donation during the annual WSUL/WVOS Heart-A-Thon will be doing just that.

NEW THIS YEAR…. You can become a “HEART HERO” by committing to pledge $19 a month for the entire year.  

During the last several weeks Sullivan County residents have been contributing by purchasing hearts from local merchants.

Donations will also be accepted throughout the day on Friday, as the event is broadcast live on WSUL and WVOS. Those who wish to participate can do so by phoning in a pledge or visiting CRMC’s Garden Level Food Court. 

The annual event will broadcast live on WSUL, 98.3/95.7 FM, and WVOS, 95.9 FM, from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
