About This Activity

Join the Louisiana Pediatric Cardiology Foundation’s 2nd Annual Heart Hero Hustle on April 1, 2017! This event will be held at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales thanks to our Ascension 4-H/LSU AgCenter partners. It includes a 5k, 1-mile fun run, and CHD Awareness Walk. Runners of all ages will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the course around the lake. Men, women, boys and girls are invited to participate. This is a non-competitive race, but a clock will be posted at the finish line for runners to check their times. Every finisher will receive a custom Heart Hero Hustle medal. Louisiana's only Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Awareness Walk featuring families with children battling heart defects/disease from all over the state will take place immediately after the 1-mile fun run ends. Food and drinks will be available as well as post-race activities and entertainment for children. FREE heart screens will be provided by LPCF on-site for athletes in grades 9-12. Wear RED and BLUE and/or superhero costumes to show your support for the cause!

All proceeds from this event benefit the Louisiana Pediatric Cardiology Foundation (LPCF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides support for families across south central Louisiana who have a child battling congenital heart defects/heart disease. Grants are available to assist families with travel and lodging expenses during a child’s heart surgery, as well as a support group for moms. In addition, LPCF also provides FREE heart screens for high school athletes.

Online race registration is now open! Go to https://runsignup.com/Race/LA/Gonzales/HeartHeroHustle to register for the 5k and/or 1-mile fun run! If you are ONLY participating in the CHD Awareness Walk, registration is not required.
