About This Activity

Join the Louisiana Pediatric Cardiology Foundation’s 3rd Annual Heart Hero Hustle on April 21, 2018! This event will be held at the Pointe at Americana in Zachary. It includes a 5k, 1-mile fun run, and CHD Awareness Walk. Runners of all ages will enjoy the beautiful course through the unique neighborhood. 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. If you are ONLY participating in the CHD Awareness Walk, registration is not required. Food and drinks will be available as well as post-race activities and entertainment for children. 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 in an effort to prevent Sudden Cardiac Death.
