WAPAKONETA – More than 700 friends of the Lima Memorial Foundation gathered at the Armstrong Air & Space Museum to Journey to the Moon.

lima memorial foundationGuests toured the museum to explore the defining moments in history when America put the first man on the moon. Guests actively participated in silent & live auctions and raised their paddles in support of bringing innovative lung cancer diagnostic equipment to the region. With a record-setting profit of $550,000, history was once again made in Wapakoneta, Ohio.

As a regional health care system, Wapakoneta is a very important part of Lima Memorial’s community of care. As locations for the 2016 Journey were evaluated, Wapakoneta and the Armstrong Air and Space Museum stood out as a natural fit for the annual event. Lincoln Family Practice and Lima Memorial Physicians continue to be a healthcare landmark in the community and is known for its patient-centered care. The hospital responded to the community’s expressed need for increased access to care by opening the Walk-In Care Center at Lincoln Family Practice seven days a week.
