Thought for the Day

Thursday, May 15, 2008

This question was presented to the Medtronic Foundation and the Twin Cities Marathon, Inc.
So far, there has been no response.

=============================
There is a rumor that Wisconsin residents will be banned from the Medtronic Global Heroes program in 2009 because Wisconsin has a higher rate of Sudden Cardiac Death than any other state, about 4 times that of Hawaii. I would like to be able to quash this rumor. I want to tell everyone that it isn't true.
However, I thought I should check first, since it sounds like something you might do.
Can you please confirm or deny this rumor?
Thanks,
Jerry Nairn
=============================

It seems likely that the same sort of logic that was applied to diabetics over 40 will be applied to residents of Wisconsin.
