40th Annual WIBX Slocum Dickson Heart Radiothon


There wouldn't be A Heart Run and Walk Weekend without the Annual WIBX, Slocum-Dickson Medical Group Heart Radiothon.  Started in 1971 after the passing of WIBX Radio personality, Ralph Allinger from a Heart Attack.  In 1974 a group of runners did the first trek from Barneveld to the old WIBX studio's in Clark Mills and the Heart Run was born!
