Affiliates Team Up to Support Heart Marathon, Walk

Published March 2009

For the first time, UC, University Hospital and UC Physicians are coming together to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and research.

The three local health care providers have united to create a team for the upcoming 32nd Annual Mini Marathon and Heart Walk organized by the American Heart Association (AHA).

The event, scheduled for Sunday, March 29, is the AHA’s largest fundraiser, raising dollars for local and national cardiovascular research. The AHA currently contributes more than $3.6 million in research support to a number of projects at UC.

The 5K run begins at 9 a.m., the 15K mini marathon starts at 10 a.m., and the 5K and 10K heart walks start at 1 p.m. There will be a 2K Mini-MaraFun at 12:30 p.m. for kids, ages 7 to 12.

The minimum entry fee for all races is $40. The walks are $35 and the kids’ run is $20.

On March 28, the AHA will host a Health and Fitness Expo at the Cincinnati Convention Center from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Events include a Kids’ Fun Run at 11:45 a.m. in the convention’s lobby.
