Why Racing Hearts 5K/10K Race

"I run in honor of my father, who I lost to heart disease when I was fifteen years old. I run to inspire my daughter, who I want to understand what it means to live actively with heart disease. And at times I run just for me, to remind myself that hypertrophic cardiomyopathy does not define how I live my life."

-Julie P.
