About This Activity

According to the American Heart Association, Heart Disease is the #1 killer of women and is more dangerous than all the cancers combined.

During the "Heart Month" of February, named for more than just the Valentines Day event, we the producers of the SweetHeart 5K invite you to make this month about the hearts we can save by inviting the one you love or care about to come out with you on Saturday, February 13th and walk, run, or race to "Save A Heart" with us.

In 2015, we managed to see walkers and runners, AND, the support of over 30 businesses from all over San Diego.  We, in turn, received an excess of $15,000 in prizes and giveaways making this event the largest "winning" event in San Diego.  In this upcoming 2016 event, we expect to exceed that with the largest collection of Valentine themed prizes ever offered at such an event.

We're not stopping there either.  For 2016, we're also adding signature SH5K medals, tech "red" shirts in support of "Wear Red" for women, chip timing, a better course, a mobile app, and the chance to fundraise for the AHA as part of your participation in the upcoming event.  Our goal for this year is $5K to the AHA and with your help, we can do it!
