The Iowa Heart Center Foundation has hosted an annual Run for Your Life event for the past 11 years. Our goal with this event has been to raise awareness of heart disease and fund placements of automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) in Iowa communities.
As we look ahead to the ways in which we can promote heart health in Iowa, we believe this event has “run its course” and it is being retired. If you have participated and/or volunteered in past Run For Your Life events, we thank you for your efforts.
The Iowa Heart Center Foundation remains committed to “Building healthy hearts and lives”; we will continue to sponsor the placement of AEDs in Iowa communities and provide education about cardiac health. Please stay tuned for future information about upcoming events and ways to get involved with/show support for heart health in Iowa as we update our approaches to fundraising and awareness.
