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?

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