In recognition of Heart Month in February, Coffee Regional Medical Center and the Wellness Center invite the public to participate in the Heart 2 Heart Run at General Coffee State Park on Saturday, February 25. This event is held annually as one of two main fundraising events in support of the CRMC Cardiac Rehab Program and Scholarship. The weekend kicks off with Wear Red Day, this year held on Friday, February 24, in remembrance of those with cardiovascular disease.



Beginning at 8:00 am Saturday, February 25, all participants of the Heart 2 Heart run will convene at General Coffee State Park just outside Douglas. The Heart 2 Heart Run event consists of a 1.5-mile fun run for ages 5-10 years old, a 1.5-mile walk for adults and youth, a 5K and 10K run. The route winds through the state park's beautiful grounds with water stations and well-marked wayfaring signs. Each entrant receives a t-shirt, a delicious lunch generously donated by Chick-Fil-A Douglas, a chance to win awards for their run times, and many other prizes donated by local businesses.



Following the run, all participants and their families are invited to participate in the many activities throughout the state park. General Coffee State Park also offers a petting zoo, fishing, and miles of walking trails, including a beautiful bridge over the 17-mile river. Additionally, paddle boats and kayak rentals are available through the welcome center if you and your family want to enjoy the serenity of the calm lake with your friends and family. The campgrounds and cabin rentals are also available for those looking to have a weekend away from home. For more information on the activities available at the state park, don't hesitate to contact the General Coffee Park main office at (912) 384-7082.



All funds raised from the Heart 2 Heart Festival and Wear Red Day will be used for cardiac rehab scholarships. Cardiac rehab is a physician-prescribed program for patients who have had a cardiac procedure or episode, such as:

  • Heart attack within 12 months
  • Stable chest pain (angina)
  • Valve Replacement
  • Post CABG
  • Stent/PTCA
  • Heart Transplant
  • Stable Chronic Heart Failure



Most insurance plans cover this program; however, the cardiac rehab scholarship makes this life-changing program possible for those not covered. Through education and exercise, the goal is to help patients achieve their best health and improve their quality of life. Each patient receives an individualized exercise plan based on their health status, fitness level, and personal goals. The experienced team works with the patients' cardiologists to track their progress and ensure they are on a stronger and healthier lifestyle.



There is still time to sign up for the Heart 2 Heart Festival. For more information or to sign up online, please visit www.coffeeregional.org/events. To speak with a team member about cardiac rehab, please get in touch with the Wellness Center at (912) 383-6988.
