2013 NATIONAL RURAL HEALTH DAY PHOTO CONTEST WINNERS
The attached photo was taken at Lost Rivers Medical Center in Arco of my grandson watching
life flight during one of two landings at dusk one Saturday. As the flight crew prepared to
receive their patient, this child's innocent observation is in direct contrast to the reality that
someone would soon board this vessel while fighting for their life. Moments like these serve as
a reminder of the importance of rural hospital facilities.

This photo was taken in October 2013 during our Brake for Breakfast event. Caption, “ Everyone
Likes Brake For Breakfast ”. We gave away 800 breakfasts in 1 hour and 30 minutes. Cars were
lined up for a mile. The pink tractor is owned by a local resident and is on display during all of
our breast cancer awareness events. Our theme this year was Keep the Lumps out of your Cups.
