The goal of this year’s event is to increase cardiovascular health awareness within our community. In previous years, we raised about $500 each year, 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 with education on heart disease and their risks of getting heart attacks.
Participants can run or walk, but the top runners will be awarded PRIZES! Free food will also be provided. Please join us as the 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!
Registration for this 5K is $15. But with an additional $5, you can also get a dri-fit T-shirt! You can register for the 5K until the day of the event, but the T-shirt deadline is March 5th. So sign up early!
