OSU Ross Heart TriFit Challenge
The Long John Run is part of the OSU Ross Heart Hospital's Wellness series - a partnership between OSU Ross Heart Hospital and City of Columbus Recreation and Parks and the Department of Health to promote heart-healthy activities for the prevention of heart disease. All proceeds from this event go to the Ross Heart Hospital for heart disease treatment and research or back into the community for City of Columbus programs supporting heart health and overall wellness.
In addition, we are collecting laundry detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, soap, toilet paper and paper towels to be donated to The Unverferth House www.unverferthhouse.org ,which serves as a temporary residence for The Ohio State University Medical Center heart transplant patients and families who live outside Franklin County.
