BINGO!! Family Health, Safety and Fitness Challenge Begins

Manning, Iowa ­- Manning Regional Healthcare Center is excited to announce a fun challenge for families in Manning and surrounding communities. MRHC is dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our community members, so in recognition of that as well as safety month, MRHC has created an interactive BINGO challenge promoting summer health and safety.

“Maintaining and promoting families’ health remains a consistent focus for Manning Regional Healthcare Center and the West Central Iowa Healthcare Foundation. Summer is a great time to incorporate wellness and healthy activities into your family plans,” said Linn Block, RN, BSN, MHA, Manning Regional’s CEO. “Please join us for some summer fun and the chance to win some awesome prizes! We want to be your families’ center of wellness, as well as be there for you during times of illness,” Block said.

The BINGO card challenge focuses on family health, fitness and safety and consists of fun activities for children and families to do together as well as safety and nutrition goals to achieve. One BINGO card will be allowed per family and once a blackout bingo has been completed, cards can be turned in at the main entrance of MRHC to receive a prize.

More than $1,000 in prizes will be awarded, sponsored by West Central Iowa Healthcare Foundation and a Thrivent Action Team. On July 15, the BINGO challenge will end, and MRHC will draw winners for the grand prizes which include $100 in Manning Chamber bucks, a Manning Rec Center pool and sub sandwich party for ten people from Deb’s Corner Café, a ten-punch Rec Center pass, a $100 gift certificate from Ramsey’s Market-Manning, fishing gear from Spies OutdoorSports, and an L&M bowling party for ten! BINGO cards must be submitted by 5pm on July 14th to be entered into the final drawing.

As a reminder, if your family has not scheduled your annual physicals yet, call MRHC at (712) 655-2072 to set up your appointments.
