Event Overview It is with great privilege that the HEARTest Yard Program and Showmars Restaurants join forces to host the third 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.
With pre-race activities taking place at CMC Myers Park (day-of registration, packet pick-up, announcements, etc.)., Greg Olsen and family will lead a parade march to the HEARTest Yard + Showmars 5K start line on Cumberland Avenue upon completion of the pre-race program.
Run or walk the scenic streets of the Queen City.The race will end on South Kings Drive at Levine Children’s Hospital, and a post-race celebration held in the parking lot will include a complimentary kid’s fun run, refreshments, music, inflatables and more.
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 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.
