2nd Annual SW Florida 5K Sunset SCADaddle for Research
Friday, March 29, 2019 6:30 PM
Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD), a little known and poorly understood type of heart attack. Most patients are younger healthy women who do not have the typical risk factors of heart disease. Although less common, it can affect men too. SCAD can recur and can be fatal. Research is needed to identify the cause(s) and the best treatment options.
SCAD is the #1 cause of heart attacks in women under age 50, pregnant women & new moms.
The chip timed SCADaddle Sunset Run/Walk will take place at Payne Park in Sarasota, a vacation destination! The two lap course runs through and around the park on a varied terrain of crushed cinder, concrete sidewalk and grass.
All runners willl be timed. Awards will be given to overall winner male and female. Medals/recognition will be given to 2nd and 3rd place male/female overall and to the top three males/females for age groups: 9 and under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79 and 80 and older.
