Charity Golf Day

We have a fun announcement!  The one day Brainerd Lakes Metabolic Health Symposium is to be held on Saturday, September 21 at the Cragun's Resort but on the Sunday, September 22 we are holding a charity golf event at the same venue.  This event is to raise funds for The SMHP™ and the local Boys and Girls Club.  If you play golf at all we would love for you to join in.  You can sign up for that during your registration process for the event.  If you don't play golf, maybe you'd like to stay through Sunday anyway and either partake in the water activities they have at the resort or take the opportunity to stretch your legs and follow some of the golfers around the course.
