Provena Regional EMS Announces Second Annual Home Run Event
06/12/2007

June 12, 2007, Danville, Illinois- The Second Annual Provena Regional EMS “Home Run” will be held on Sunday, July 1, to honor Emergency Medical Services professionals and to raise money for the Provena Covenant and Provena United Samaritans Foundations.

On Sunday, July 1, bikers and hot-rod owners are invited to participate in this “poker run” that will begin at Provena United Samaritans in Danville, travel through four counties, and stop at five Provena Regional EMS “home" agencies along the way. The ride then will finish at the Gifford Fourth of July Celebration just in time for the Street Dance.

For a $10 entry fee, participants will pick up a card at each stop and the winning hand will receive a cash prize. Additional hands can be purchased for $5 each. The proceeds will be donated to the Provena Covenant Medical Center Foundation and the Provena United Samaritans Medical Center Foundation. Door prizes will also be awarded at the end of the run.

“Our agencies are spread out over a wide area, and the Home Run is a fun way for people to learn about our system and see some of the sites,” states Dave Stone, Director of Provena Regional EMS.”

Registration on July 1 will begin at 12:30p.m. in the Regional Cancer Center parking lot on the medical center campus at 812 N. Logan Avenue, Danville, and participants will depart at 1:30p.m.

The Provena Regional Emergency Medical Services System (EMS) is a coordinated effort between Provena United Samaritans Medical Center in Danville and Provena Covenant Medical Center in Urbana. This system draws on the resources of more than 60 independent agencies (such as ambulance services, fire/rescue squads) in eight counties, and both Provena medical centers, to provide coordinated emergency health care to residents throughout east central Illinois and parts of western Indiana. As part of a continuing commitment to quality emergency care, the Provena Regional EMS System provides education and patient care coordination for all its participating members.
