Join us for our first 5K Scrub Run before our annual Grand Rapids Heart Walk. The run will take place along the Grand River starting from the Fifth Third Ball Park on September 29th. This is also known as the White Pine Trail.
What is a Scrub Run? One of the first in the country, it's a chance to run in your scrubs, or the uniform that you, as a heart-hero, might wear. Regular running attire is also welcome.
Gates Open - 8:00am
5K Scrub Run - 9:00am (This is a new event)
Local companies and individuals can register as runners or form Heart Walk teams now at www.GrandRapidsHeartWalk.org. Donations can also be made through the website.
The Scrub Rub participants will recieve a T-Shirt and medal with a $25 registration fee if they register before September 14. Walkers can receive a Heart Walk T-shirt once they have raised a minimum of $100. Heart Walk participation is free. Runners who register later than September 14 will recieve their shirt and medal after the event.
The American Heart Association’s mission is building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Held annually, the walk celebrates those who have made lifestyle changes in an effort to improve their heart-health, and encourages others to take the pledge to live healthier lifestyles, while raising the funding needed for life-saving research and education. We will celebrate Healthy For Good in our community!
