Heart and Sole Donates to YMCA

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Another organization received a hearty donation from the heart and sole race organizers today.

The YMCA got a check for $15,000 dollars.

Race organizers say they were chosen because they improve the community's health. Before the check was presented, the YMCA youth sang songs and jumped for joy.

David Irion says the funds are an investment for future generations.

David Irion, St. Vincent's Healthcare President said, "These types of events and programs actually facilitate action, and movement and the importance of like I said kind of getting off the couch and being apart of an active lifestyle."

Irion says the record number of participants in the heart and sole race this year, allowed them to donate 2-thousand dollars more than last year.
