FamilyHealth–Lakeville to sponsor “Night to Unite” neighborhood event

For the third year in a row, FamilyHealth Medical Clinic–Lakeville will sponsor a free, family-friendly neighborhood “Night to Unite” event for residents across the Lakeville community. Part of a national initiative that was previously observed as “National Night Out,” Night to Unite offers neighbors the chance to socialize and take a stand against crime. The FamilyHealth–Lakeville Night to Unite event will be held on the grounds of the clinic (9974 214th Street West, at the corner of County Road 70 and Jacquard Avenue) on Tuesday, August 3 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Featuring a free picnic dinner, kids’ activities, health and safety information, “No Fear CPR” training, emergency vehicles and Mayo One helicopter (subject to weather and medical need), FamilyHealth expects more than 350 people will come out for its Night to Unite celebration. While sponsored by FamilyHealth, various neighboring organizations, including the Center for Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation, will also be on site for the evening.

Bob Finke, event organizer and clinic manager for FamilyHealth Medical Clinic, said, “Each year this event has grown and has proven to be a great match for our organization. Not only do we have the opportunity to see many, many of our patients, neighbors and friends, but the Night to Unite mission aligns well with ours, providing a great platform for discussing health and safety information.”

One of the highlights of FamilyHealth’s evening will include “No Fear CPR” training, a hands-only CPR method that is also referred to as “CPR Anytime.” The instruction is offered in support of the City of Lakeville’s Heart Restart! initiative, a program to train 14,000 residents in a specific series of actions that can increase the survival rate of sudden cardiac arrest victims.
