Heart Beat Week

My 12th annual "Heart Beat Week" has come and gone.  Another geat week of excersise and heart related connections.  Over a thousand valentines were sent to John Muir Hospital and the support from them is legendary.  I have been contacted by their relations department for recognition of our community influence and they are submitting our efforts to the national "Magnet" program.  Only 5% of hospitals nation wide receive this honor and we will be part of that recognition.  As we learn during "Heart Beat Week" there are two parts of the heart.  The "Thumping, Pumping,"  and the "Sharing, Caring."   Thanks to all the Caring Kids at Sycamore Valley, we really did "Lift Hearts" that week.
