2019 Golf Social July 26

The purpose of Canton-Inwood Area Health Foundation is to support projects that impact community health and inspire additional community investments in projects that benefit health and wellness opportunities.

Our goals include sustaining and improving health care in the Sanford Canton-Inwood service area; supporting Sanford Canton-Inwood Medical Center, Sanford Canton and Inwood Clinics and Sanford Hiawatha Heights assisted living, as important community assets. Some of our projects have included an ambulance, radiology and stress testing equipment and a donation that allowed the hospital to remodel and expand to meet community needs. Currently, we are raising funds to provide equipment necessary to offer osteoporosis screening locally.

We also provide financial assistance for the education of future health care professionals through annual scholarships. To date, we have given $36,000 in scholarships to local students. In addition, we offer grants annually to organizations that seek to improve the health and well-being of our community. We have provided over $190,000 in grants to community organizations for projects that benefit youth sports to senior fitness, AED equipment at local churches to quality of life projects for nursing home residents and much, much more.

Each year, we host a golf event to help raise funds to meet these goals. Our event this year will be July 26 at Hiawatha Golf Club. We would be grateful for any support that you can provide. Monetary gifts will be applied directly to our projects. Gift cards, tickets or merchandise are also very much appreciated as prizes. Of course, we
