2019 Laughter is the Best Medicine

Laughter is the Best Medicine Present Carnaval De Rio

On August 24, 2019, our community came together to support Presbyterian Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab during Laughter is the Best Medicine: Carnaval de Rio!

Together we raised more than $433,000.

Proceeds will benefit the development of a new cardiac and pulmonary rehab center in Rio Rancho. The new facility will expand these important programs to patients in the City of Vision and on Albuquerque's west side. Thank you for participating by sponsoring, volunteering, attending the event, bidding in the auction and purchasing raffle tickets. We couldn’t do it without you!

Here's a look at how this valuable program completely changed the lives of three patients.

A special thank you to our Presenting sponsors, T-Systems and Wells Fargo.
