4th Annual Run for your Heart 5K

Event Date

Sun, Feb 2, 2014


Gainesville, FL

About This Activity

The goal of this year’s event is to increase cardiovascular health awareness with February being American Heart Awareness Month.  At last year’s event we raised over $700, which allowed us to provide free blood pressure screenings and cholesterol screenings to hundreds of patients in the Gainesville community. During these screenings, student pharmacists provided patients education on heart disease and their risks of heart attacks.

Participants can run or walk, but the top two runners in each of the men’s and women’s categories will be awarded PRIZES! Free breakfast will also be provided. Please join us as funds gathered from this event will help to continue to provide free screenings as well as provide the community with fun and heart-smart events!

Event schedule and times

The race will start promptly at 8:00am at the Westside Park. For participants that have pre-registered, please arrive no later than 7:30am to sign in and pick up your race packets.
