Ankle & Foot Care Golf Benefit Raises $14,500 for Diabetes Groups

BOARDMAN, Ohio – Ankle & Foot Care Centers announced today that its September golf benefit raised $14,500 for two organizations that provide diabetes education and resources.

Dr. Michelle Anania, partner at Ankle & Foot and organizer of the event, recently presented a check for $12,000 to the Diabetes Partnership of the Mahoning Valley. Another $2,500 was donated to the American Diabetes Association Northeast Ohio Office.

Some 100 golfers participated in the Sept. 18 golf outing, which was supported by dozens of local corporate and private sponsors. The annual benefit has raised more than $140,000 for diabetes-related work since it debuted in 1999.

The Diabetes Partnership has used the funds for supplies and care for diabetic patients of the Midlothian Free Health Clinic in Youngstown and supplies for diabetic students at St. Christine’s School in the city, among other locations.

“These funds help us make a meaningful impact in the lives of local people with diabetes,” Dr. Anania said. “We appreciate all of those who contributed to the golf benefit, including the staff who volunteered their time to make it a success.”

Edward Hassay, president of the Diabetes Partnership, added, “This commitment from the Ankle & Foot physicians enables us to address immediate and growing needs of local uninsured diabetics while allowing us to also save toward our planned future goals. For example, we would like to start a scholarship fund for college students struggling with diabetes.”

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