2nd Annual Minnesota 5K SCADaddle for Research 

Saturday, September 7, 2019 9:00 am 

Our Cause

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) is 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.


Our 5K trail fun Run/Walk takes place at Battle Creek Regional Park on winding trails through natural areas that offer a spectacular look at Ramsey County's diverse landscape.

All runners & walkers will be awarded a medal. 

Join us for refreshments, SCAD store, kids' activities and fun for all!
