Cayuga Medical Center’s 1st Annual Community Partner Award Given at Annual Community Meeting

Pete Saltonstall Receives Award for “Ride for Heart Health” for the Cayuga Heart Institute

Ithaca, NY –  At Cayuga Medical Center’s Annual Community Meeting at the end of April,  Pete Saltonstall of Treleaven, King Ferry Winery,  was awarded the 1st Annual Community Partner Award. The award was given by John Rudd, president and CEO of Cayuga Medical Center for Saltonstall’s passion of organizing the “Ride for Heart Health,” a bicycle ride to raise funds for Cayuga Heart Institute. Each year the funds augment the costs for education of raising awareness about heart issues, heart attacks, and what to do if you or someone near you is having the signs and symptoms of one. 

John Rudd,  a cycling enthusiast himself,  commented  “Heart attack and issues of the heart still remains the #1 killer in America, what we do locally makes a huge difference in the health of our community. Awareness and time in this case is a matter of life and death.  Partnerships in events such as the “Ride for Heart Health” are a wonderful compliment to the Center, to partner with Peter Saltonstall, of King Ferry Winery, to raise awareness of heart disease with a fun ride, and a host of events following at King Ferry Winery.”

The ride, now in its third year, is slated for June 13th, 2015. It has been very successful, attracting cyclists from across the Finger Lakes and as far away as Missouri says Saltonstall, who has recently taken up cycling as part of his new approach to heart-healthy living.  To register, go to and look for Ride for Heart Health; see for more information or email rideforhearthealth@gmail with questions.
