By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - Nearly a hundred golfers hit the links today giving back to the Healthy Hearts Club in a heart friendly way.

The Club has hosted the annual golf scramble for nearly three years raising money for healthy heart equipment and programs.

The event included a raffle where participants have the opportunity to win one of the 15 prizes from businesses throughout the community.

Club members and participants say it is a fun and healthy way to give back to the community.

"Well it's really nice to see community support and raising money for the heart program that we have at Trinity. It's a great cause, great program and it benefits our cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program." said Tara Flory , Trinity Health cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program.

"When you don't use a golf cart it's really good physical activity. So it's just a great way to kick off the golf season and raise money for our heart program," said Jordan Schmitt, Trinity Health Auxiliary Healthy Hearts Club Co-Coordinator.
