Family makes donation in remembrance of John Kohut Junior
A Drumheller family has made a significant donation to Heart to Heart in memory of a loved one who passed away earlier this year.
John Kohut Junior passed away on August 23. Last week his family made a donation of $8,000 to support Heart To Heart. The local, primarily made up of residents who have used the Cardiac Rehabilitation Department, raised funds to buy equipment for the Drumheller Health Centre.
Heather Colberg said the donation is from the entire family.
“We decided we wanted to do something in tribute for John, and because of all the heart issues in our family, we decided the Heart to Heart Society was the best place to put the funds,” she said. The funds are to be used to purchase a NuStep T5xr recumbent cross trainer. This is easier for patients with mobility issues to use for their cardiovascular conditioning. Each unit cost $8,000.
“Heart to Heart is an amazing group, we have seen it first hand in our family so we are proud to be part of that,” said Colberg.
