Golf Tournament Raises Over $13,000 For Diabetes Research, Ankle & Foot Care Centers Reports

BOARDMAN, OHIO – Ankle & Foot Care Centers, operators of 20 local foot care offices, today announced that the American Diabetes Association Golf Benefit it sponsored in August raised more than $13,000 to support diabetes research.

The event, held at Pine Lakes Golf Course in Hubbard, attracted 128 area golfers and 64 corporate and hole sponsors. The $13,200 raised represents funds from entry fees, sponsorships and cash donations from the participants.

The tournament was the 11th annual edition of the event organized by Ankle & Foot Care Centers, the region’s largest provider of podiatric care. The 11 events have together raised more than $79,000 for diabetes research.

“We are very pleased to see the community 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, diabetes research and advanced foot care go a long way toward addressing the effects of diabetes and preventing the complications of the disease.”

Ankle & Foot Care Centers has been a strong supporter of the ADA’s Tri-County Chapter 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 lower extremities and feet.

Ankle & Foot Care Centers is the region’s largest podiatric care provider. Its 14 physicians and surgeons serve patients at 20 local offices, located in Alliance, Austintown, Boardman (2), Campbell, Champion, Columbiana, East Liverpool, East Palestine, Greenville (Pa.), Howland, Kinsman, Lake Milton, Liberty, Niles, Poland, Salem, Struthers, Warren and Youngstown. Specific locations and other information are located on the group’s website, at www.ankleandfootcare.com.
