The year-long partnership kicks off with Penrose-St. Francis as the sponsor of the Air Force Academy football season opener. The Falcons will face Nicholls State University at the Air Force Academy Aug. 30. The partnership continues into basketball and hockey season.
“I’ve heard over and over from the coaches at the Academy that their primary goal is to create military leaders,” said Margaret Sabin, president and CEO of Penrose-St. Francis Health Services. “Athletics is an important part of that training. As a health care leader, I know that through sports these men and women are learning valuable life lessons and developing healthy habits that will lead to a lifetime of good health and leadership. We are proud to partner with the Air Force Academy to support these athletes.”
