Help UC Health Make Strides in Heart Mini Marathon March 28
Published March 2010
Lace up your running (or walking) shoes. Or, simply remain seated and open up your checkbook.
Those are all ways to help the UC Health effort in the 2010 Walmart Mini Marathon and Heart Walk, scheduled for Sunday, March 28, in downtown Cincinnati.
UC Health University Hospital and University of Cincinnati Phy-sicians are among the sponsors of the annual event, which draws thousands of runners and walkers to support the American Heart Association’s campaign against cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
The day’s events include the 15-kilometer Heart Mini Marathon, the 5-kilometer HeartRun, the 2-kilometer Kids Mini-MaraFun, the 5-kilometer and 10-kilometer HeartWalk and the 1-kilometer Steps for Stroke Walk.
A fitness expo will be held Saturday, March 27, at the Duke Energy Center.
