Cheer on KentuckyOne in the Pegasus Parade
Friday, April 21, 2017
KentuckyOne Health - Louisville Market
KentuckyOne Health is a proud sponsor of this year’s Republic Bank Pegasus® Parade and Pegasus Parade Preview Party.
The Kentucky Derby is the most anticipated event of the year in Louisville, and the week leading up to the big day is also full of a variety of exciting community events. For the first time, KentuckyOne Health will participate in the Republic Bank Pegasus Parade, an event that’s been an integral part of the Kentucky Derby Festival for 61 years.
Calling All Movers and Shakers
“Louisville on the Move” is the theme for the 2017 Republic Bank Pegasus Parade. KentuckyOne Health’s presence is dedicated to our heart heroes — the physicians who provide great heart care and all of our current and former heart patients. One of our goals is to highlight the importance of hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The technique, which requires no mouth-to-mouth breathing, has the potential to save thousands of lives by enabling bystanders to manually circulate blood throughout the body if someone has a cardiac event.
“Here in Jefferson County, the number of community members who are able to perform hands-only CPR is lower than the national average,” said Tommy Huelsman, community outreach manager at KentuckyOne Health. “This event provides a great opportunity to reach a large part of our community.”
KentuckyOne Health has an allotment of complimentary parade tickets to give to our employees! Send us your name, email address and phone number and be entered into a drawing for tickets that offer premium viewing of the colorful floats and festivities. Be sure to indicate the number of tickets desired (limit of 4). Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
And cheer on KentuckyOne Health’s heart heroes, walkers and cancer screening van during the parade!
In addition, KentuckyOne Health is once again participating in the Republic Bank Pegasus Parade Preview Party. During the preview event, participants get a sneak peek at the parade floats and take part in our health fair. KentuckyOne Health will provide blood pressure and carbon monoxide screenings as well as acupuncture and hands-only CPR demonstrations.
