New HealthFinders Board Member Ramon Carrion is making a big mark in the Faribault Community. He and his partner Len Sorstokke own and operate Ruf Acres Market, a healthy eating market, on Central Avenue in Faribault right across the street from HealthFinders Faribault Clinic. In the short ten months since Ruf Acres Market opened, they won the Faribault Chamber of Commerce’s Business Challenge, hosted cooking classes, switched locations, and now are being honored as the Small Business of the Year.
Ramon takes his role as a HealthFinders’ Board Member as seriously as he does his business. Since he joined the board in September, he actively participates on our Community Relations and Development Committee helping to plan our recent Annual Spring Gala. He also donated two bins full of product from their store for our Silent Auction. Ramon volunteers for HealthFinders because he feels that everyone should have access to quality health care no matter their life circumstances and he knows that people in need will receive compassionate medical, dental, wellness education, and advocacy services from HealthFinders. We at HealthFinders are thankful for the gifts and talents that Ramon brings to our board and we sincerely congratulate him and his partner on their recent award.
