“Get Healthy Berea is a great opportunity for the community to join together, have some fun, and learn more about living a healthy lifestyle,” said Leslie Buddeke Smart, vice president of development, KentuckyOne Health. “We are excited to raise funds for the Patient and Family Assistance Fund of the Saint Joseph Berea Foundation through this event, which will help provide necessities to patients and their families during extended hospital stays.”
