'The Business of Health Care Report'

2011 HeartBeat 5K Race

Click to hear the taped broadcast.

I’m Doug Hawthorne, CEO of Texas Health Resources, with “The Business of Health Care Report.”

Do something good for your heart this fall! Join us at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas this Saturday, November 5 for the 20th annual HeartBeat 5K, Family Fun Run and Healthy Heart Fair. Registration is $25 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and under. Free parking is available, or you can ride DART, our official transportation sponsor, to the Walnut Hill station.

The race provides an opportunity to give back to those in need in our community. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the HeartBeat 5K are reinvested in underserved neighborhoods in Dallas to help address critical health needs. Beneficiaries include Texas Health Dallas’ sexual assault treatment program, pediatric health center and concussion management program, as well as Healing Hands Ministries in Lake Highlands.

Whether you’re young or young at heart, the HeartBeat 5K has something for everyone — from basic health screenings and flu shots to kids’ activities and door prizes. We will even have entertainment by Tim Halperin, a Season 10 contestant on American Idol.

A special thanks to our lead sponsor, Sam’s Club, as well as Tom Thumb, Channel 8, The Dallas Morning News, Channel 52 and Clear Channel Radio.

Register online today at We’ll see you on November 5.

For our faith-based family of hospitals — Texas Health Presbyterian, Texas Health Harris Methodist, and Texas Health Arlington Memorial — I’m Doug Hawthorne.
