About This Activity

The 14th annual Have Heart for Marfan and related disorders walk/fun run takes place around the beautiful Copper Creek Lake, Pleasant Hill, IA and out on to the bike trail towards Altoona, Iowa.  The scenery is beautiful and some small challenges on the bike trail.  There is something for everyone in the family.  Free Kids activities, a youth trot for the younger kids and a 2K run for the kids under 13.  Chip timing has been added this year. 

This is a great warm up for the Des Moines Marathon, which by the way, we have slots for if you are interested in running for The Marfan Foundation. 

Every year we have a great time and we are looking forward to seeing our old friends and our opportunity to make new friends to our event.
