OPEN LETTER TO PARTICIPANTS
We share a common experience, although we have never met. Like you, I've had heart surgery, and, like you, I have gone through a period of convalescence. I'm proud to bring you an optimistic message - you can and will get better, and you can and will lead an active and productive life.
Over 25 years ago, when I was recovering from my heart by-pass operation, I realized that physical exercise and diet play essential roles in recovering and maintaining one's health. That's why I founded a major benefit event for the American Heart Association called the BY-PASS-OPEN TENNIS TOURNAMENT.
The 25th annual BY-PASS-OPEN TENNIS
TOURNAMENT, which will be held on Monday,
ü Encourage exercise and participation in sporting events to demonstrate that even those who have had heart disease and/or heart surgery can lead active lives, and to promote awareness of a healthy diet;
ü Raise funds for medical research: Since all expenses and services for the BY-PASS-OPEN are donated, the American Heart Association receives the full amount of the funds contributed.
ü Have fun and camaraderie with other tennis players and enjoy a good day of round robin doubles.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday,
BY-PASS-OPEN TENNIS TOURNAMENT.
GET WELL AND GET GOING! Herman A. Slotoroff, Founder
