Now in its fifth year, the Acuity Health Challenge featured nearly 550 participants who completed either a 5K or 2-mile run/walk. Proceeds will support the creation of treatment and resuscitation rooms dedicated to pediatric patients. These rooms will have space for families, specialized equipment, and supplies to ensure young patients are able to access state-of-the-art care.
"The Acuity Health Challenge reflects our commitment to wellness and community outreach," said Ben Salzmann, President and CEO, Acuity. "We are proud to sponsor this event, which provides support to the vital care that children facing serious medical conditions need."
Michael Kelley from Jackson, Wisconsin, took first place in the men's division, and Laura Schmitz from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, captured the top spot in the women's division. The Health Challenge also included the Acuity Health Village, which featured more than 30 vendors who volunteered their time to promote various aspects of health, wellness, and safety. Participants received a well-stocked goodie bag and a custom dry-wick T-shirt.
"The Acuity Health Challenge is a family-friendly, low-cost event that brings the community together in support of important healthcare initiatives," said Wally Waldhart, Vice President - Sales & Communications, Acuity.
