Atlanta, GA (November 1, 2009) Village Podiatry Centers’ teamed up again with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) in Atlanta in support of their annual fall fundraising. This year’s partnership netted $5,000 for the ADA from the efforts of physicians and staff.
“Our doctors treat a large patient population with diabetes. These patients often have complex foot and ankle healthcare needs that if left unchecked can lead to serious infections and even amputation,” said CEO, Dr. David Helfman. “The ADA is doing an outstanding service to our community. We are proud to join them in the fight against this deadly disease.”
Village Podiatry’s fundraising efforts included a “Wall of Shoes” display in each clinic to solicit funds from patients, family and friends. The physicians and staff also laced up their sneakers and joined the Step Out Walk in Grant Park with a team of walkers and provided an information booth on diabetic foot care.
“We applaud Village Podiatry Centers for their generous gifts of time, talent and donations in helping our organization towards our 2009 goal,” said Lauren Ginsberg, ADA Event Coordinator.
