About This Activity

It is with great privilege that the HEARTest Yard Program and Showmars Restaurants join forces to host the first annual HEARTest Yard + Showmars 5K. With a like-minded mission to support Levine Children’s Hospital, we’ve joined forces to maximize our impact and fundraising potential to meet the needs of and care for as many children affected by congenital heart diseases and disorders as possible. 100 percent of proceeds generated during this family-friendly event will benefit programs (HEARTest Yard Program/Program for Pediatric Hearts) at Levine Children’s Hospital.

Kicking off at Irwin Academic Center in uptown Charlotte, off of West 5th Street, join us Saturday, May 21 for our Kids Fun Run/5K and run or walk the scenic streets of the Queen City. Minutes after crossing the finish line at Levine Children’s Hospital, enjoy refreshments and fun including music, inflatables and more!

Parking will be available at Irwin Academic Center. Because our post-race activities will take place at Levine Children’s Hospital, a free shuttle will be available to transport participants back to their vehicles.

When it comes to a child’s heart, getting the best care available is all that matters. With nationally recognized, board-certified pediatric cardiac specialists, the Congenital Heart Center at Levine Children’s Hospital is the preeminent pediatric cardiac left in the region.

Levine Children’s Hospital was established in 2007 and, because of support from its organizations such as yours, offers more than 30 specialized treatments, including transplants, cancer care and the highest level of neonatal intensive care in the region. Together, the HEARTest Yard, Showmars and Levine Children’s Hospital are investing in research and education, ensuring the best care for the children of the Carolinas.
