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.
