David Allen Memorial Ballpark

St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center has partnered with the American Heart Association to roll out their latest national fundraising campaign called “HeartChase”

Think “Amazing Race” meets “Minute to Win it.” This heart-healthy event is open to all ages.

Along the way, teams will sample a showcase of what is healthy in Enid and learn ways to live a healthier lifestyle.

This is a new program and the American Heart Association has chosen Enid to be one of the pilot communities.

Teams will have race checkpoints set up throughout the downtown area and are planning a festival-like atmosphere for the ballpark. Activities will continue into the afternoon downtown. For more information, contact Corinna for booth spaces at corinna.reed@uhsinc.com.
