Summer and baseball go hand in hand, as does heart-health awareness and Dartmouth Health’s Heart & Vascular Center. Get your heart pumping at their 5th annual Love Your Heart Night at the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium where the Fisher Cats faceoff with the Erie Seawolves.
The evening will include free heart-health screenings, CPR demonstrations, fun educational activities and a powerful video message from Kelly George, an Enfield, NH, resident, and heart transplant recipient. Kelly was born with an inherited cardiac condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which eventually lead to heart failure and a need for a new heart.
“Love Your Heart Night is an evening that is centered around heart health awareness and reducing the risk of heart disease,” said Mark Creager, MD, director of the Heart & Vascular Center. “We are delighted to have Kelly as our guest of honor, as she has dedicated her post-transplant life to advocating for patients with heart disease. Her work with organizations like Donate Life and the American Heart Association has made her well known in those communities, but her story is one that should be heard by everyone. Kelly’s journey with heart disease is unique, but her message is universal—listen to your body, and seek medical attention when something feels wrong. We hope everyone will join us to hear Kelly’s story, share in the free heart health screenings and CPR demonstrations, and enjoy a great evening of baseball.”
Join Kelly in wearing red for this informative and fun evening capped off with fireworks. Gates open at 6:00 pm on Saturday, August 13, 2022. Tickets can be purchased online at nhfishercats.com or by calling 603-641-2005.
