New in 2022 the Iowa Heart Center Foundation has launched an "Iowa Has Heart" campaign to promote heart health across the state of Iowa.
Ottumwa Has Heart 5K
The first event of the campaign was held in Ottumwa in April 2022. The first "Ottumwa Has Heart" 5K Run/Walk raised $10,000. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Iowa and Wapello is one of the most impacted counties.
Proceeds for the event will support heart health initiatives in southeast Iowa. For more information visit our Ottumwa Has Heart Page.
