Another successful Achieving a Healthy Balance women's event
Ridgeview Foundation celebrated its 13th annual women’s event, Achieving a Healthy Balance, on Oct. 3 at the Oak Ridge Conference Center in Chaska with more than 140 women attending.
This day, designed by women for women, was filled with outstanding speakers, a unique shopping experience and wonderful food. Anne Voas, Ridgeview Rehab Specialties director, provided inspiring solutions for healthy aging in each stage of life. Kris James delivered fascinating information in using everyday herbs not only for culinary purposes but also for their medicinal and fragrant properties. Guests cried with laugher as Deadra Stanton reminded us to pause and see the gifts in everyday life.
Darel Radde, Ridgeview’s director of Ambulance, Communications and Security, walked guest through a day in the life of a paramedic. More than $7,000 was raised to make it possible to provide a pediatric stabilization board for each Ridgeview ambulance. This life-saving device will make a difference in the lives of children when they are being transported in an emergency when they are most vulnerable.
