After 26 years, the Prairie Ridge Health Foundation Annual Golf Classic is still attracting area golfers to participate in the event that puts the fun in fundraising.

This year, participants traveled to Old Hickory Golf Course to support PRHF’s efforts to raise funds for new exercise and physical therapy equipment for the hospital’s new rehabilitation center opening in the fall of 2020. In addition, a portion of the proceeds are being placed in the PRH Foundation’s general endowment fund and will be used to benefit future community projects and hospital needs.

Since 2001, the Prairie Ridge Health Foundation has been growing its general endowment in hopes of reaching the $1,000,000 mark. Just last year, an enduring gift from two life-long members of the community brought that dream one step closer to reality.

In December of 2018, the PRH Foundation and eight other organizations in the Columbus and Fall River communities received part of a charitable trust from the late Russ and Peggy Fredrick, who after their passing donated more than $500,000 back to the community they called home.

From football to ballet to the world of manufacturing, athletic trainers are an important part of our daily lives. As experts in their fields, athletic trainers prevent focus on the prevention of injury, diagnosis and evaluation, rehabilitation and nutrition, and provide emergency care onsite.

Thirteen years ago, Toni Wizner began her career as an athletic trainer to assist high school athletes. This year, Wizner, an athletic trainer for Prairie Ridge Health, is celebrating her seventh year as the athletic trainer for the Columbus School District.

 “I a.m. typically at the Columbus High School two days a week. I see athletes before and after practices,” said Wizner. “I oversee exercises with them, evaluate their progress, and make referrals for them as needed.”
