The Henegar family was glued to the TV last Sunday as the Green Bay Packers took on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And they were thrilled when the Packers pulled ahead to win 26-20 in overtime.

The Curtice family cheered especially hard for Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews. They’re big fans of #52, who has become an ardent advocate for research and support for families affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Matthews has teamed up with CureDuchenne, a non-profit organization that helps fund research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Think outside the gift box: donate blood and give life

As the holidays approach, the American Red Cross is urging eligible donors to give think outside the gift box and giving life this December.
All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

Metroparks Toledo and Mercy Health announced new partnership that will provide Metroparks’ visitors new ways to enjoy the outdoors while improving their health and wellness.

The Mercy Health Foundation is donating $100,000 a year for each of the next five years to fund the purchase and installation of all-weather, ergonomically-designed fitness equipment which incorporates the elements of a well-rounded fitness routine into outdoor fitness stations.
