Join us for our first annual timed Run/Walk in beautiful Sarasota FL to raise money for research on Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD). SCAD is a little known and poorly understood cause of a heart attack. Most patients are young, healthy women that do not have the typical risk factors of heart disease.

SCAD is the #1 cause of heart attacks in women under age 50, pregnant women and new moms. 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.

5K Details & Kids Fun Run

The timed 5K run/walk will take place at Payne Park in Sarasota, a vacation destination! The SCADaddle takes place on a two lap course through and around the park on a varied terrain of crushed cinder, concrete sidewalk and grass. There will also be a Kids Fun Run immediately following the finish of the 5K for all interested!

Register by March 31 to guarantee this year’s t-shirt. Refreshments will be served at the end of the 5K.
