Mid Coast Hospital’s 26th Annual Golf Fore! Health Classic on Sept. 10 raised $57,160 for the Mid Coast Center for Community Health and Wellness, one of the highest fundraising totals in the tournament’s nearly three-decade history, according to a news release. 

There were 144 players who participated at the Brunswick Golf Club. 

The incredible outpouring of support that our organization receives each year for this tournament, not only from our dedicated staff members and volunteers, but local business sponsors, community members, and Mid Coast–Parkview Health board members, is truly remarkable,” said Randee Reynolds, vice president for Community Health at Mid Coast–Parkview Health, in the release. “The funds we have received will allow the center to expand its programming and, in turn, continue to build a healthier community in the years to come. 

The Mid Coast Center for Community Health and Wellness offers wellness programs, education and resources. Programs offered by the center focus on cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation, medical exercise, weight loss, stress reduction, tobacco cessation and healthy eating. The center also offers clinical care, workshops, support groups, literature and online resources on an array of important issues for all ages, including mental health.  

“This tournament is not only a fun, active day, but also a wonderful opportunity for our organization to interact with our community,” said Lois Skillingspresident and CEO of Mid Coast–Parkview Health. The proceeds raised from this event go towards keeping community members healthy, largely through prevention, a critical aspect of healthcare that is vital to our mission, and we are so grateful for all the individuals and businesses who support us.”
