Golf Benefit Raises Over $10,000 For Diabetes Research, Ankle & Foot Care Centers Reports

BOARDMAN, Ohio (October 18, 2010) – Ankle & Foot Care Centers, operators of 19 local foot care offices, today announced that the American Diabetes Association Golf Benefit it sponsored in August raised more than $10,000 to support diabetes research.

The event, held at the Lake Club in Poland, attracted 128 area golfers and more than 50 corporate and hole sponsors. The $10,660 raised for the ADA’s Tri-County Chapter represents funds from entry fees, sponsorships and donations.

The golf outing was the 12th annual edition of the event organized by Ankle & Foot Care Centers, the region’s largest provider of podiatric care. The 12 events have together raised nearly $90,000 for diabetes research.

“We are very pleased to see local golfers and sponsors team up with our podiatrists to support diabetes research,” said Dr. Michele Anania, a partner at Ankle & Foot Care Centers and lead organizer of the event.

“Together, advanced foot care and diabetes research go a long way toward addressing the effects of the disease and preventing complications.”

Ankle & Foot Care Centers has been a strong ADA supporter for many years, providing financial contributions while organizing support groups for diabetes patients and their families and helping to raise awareness of diabetes, especially as it affects the feet and ankles.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region’s largest podiatric care provider. Its 15 physicians and surgeons serve patients at 19 local offices, located in Alliance, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Howland, Lake Milton, Liberty, Niles, Poland, Salem, Struthers, Warren and Youngstown.
