St. Alexius employees hit the treadmill today in support of Go Red Day. More than 75 employees ran or walked 20 minutes to raise awareness for women’s heart disease. This is the first year St. Alexius held the treadmill challenge, and they say signups went fast.
(Dave Ukestad): "We had to add another treadmill on. We had such a popular return of emails that they wanted more treadmills and stuff so we were able to add a second one and all that. So it`s been a very good turnout.”
St. Alexius is one of five health care facilities in the state participating in the challenge.
