Local youth hockey players have an extra layer of care on the ice, thanks to a donation by the LakeWood Regional Healthcare Foundation. 

Two first aid kits – one to be placed at the International Arena and one at the Baudette Arena – were purchased by the Lake of the Woods Youth Hockey Association with funds donated by LakeWood Regional Healthcare Foundation. 

The Foundation is proud to support not only healthcare but also the programs and organizations in our community which make an impact on health and wellness. Activities like youth hockey are directly connected to the health, wellness and quality of life of those living in our county and surrounding areas. 

Established in 1997, the Foundation’s most ambitious fundraising effort raised $500,000 for the design and development of the new hospital and care center facility attached to the original health care facility. 

Today, the Foundation continues its mission to be “Your partner in building healthier communities where we live, work and play”. If you’d like to help the Foundation continue to make an impact in our community, consider donating today at LakeWoodHealthCenter.org/lakewood-foundation.
