Join us for the World Heart Race!
September 22-29, 2014
We raised awareness of congenital heart disease in the U.S. with our Roar 'N Run Virtual Race. Now help us raise awareness of congenital heart disease around the world by joining us for the World Heart Race 2014.
The World Heart Race is a virtual race, meaning there is not a physical location for the event--you do it anywhere you choose.
Registration is only $25, and the first 500 will receive a commemorative medal. All participants will receive a World Heart Race certificate. When you register, you can choose a distance of 5K, 10K, 13.1 miles or 26.2 miles--whatever goal works best for you.
The event will take place during the week of September 22-29 (ending on World Heart Day), so you have an entire week to complete the distance you have chosen in any manner you choose (run, walk or jog outside, inside, on a treadmill, etc.). Participants are on the honor system to complete their mileage, and we are encouraging you to email us your progress and pictures of who you are racing in honor or memory of so we can inspire other racers.
All participants can also fundraise if they choose. Funds raised will go to the Mended Little Hearts program to help us reach more families with children who have congenital heart disease, especially those in the hospital. A portion will also go to the World Heart Federation in support of World Heart Day 2014 to create healthier heart environments around the world.
