A Big Success: Second Annual 5K WALK/Fun Run for SCAD Research!

It was a gorgeous day on Saturday, May 4, 2013, and 164 registered participants (plus 50 kids!) hit the trail at Springbrook Prairie Forest Preserve in Naperville, IL, to raise awareness and funds for SCAD Research. Our turnout was bigger and the amount raised topped last year, thanks to all of our 5K WALK/Fun Run sponsors and 12 virtual walking teams.
Thank you to all those who participated in the event, including Scientific Advisory Committee members Dr. Sharonne Hayes, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, and Dr. Susan Bennett, MedStar Heart Institute, Washington, D.C.; the Mayo Clinic SCAD research team, including Dr. Marysia Tweet, nurse abstracter Sue Ward, RN, clinical trial coordinator Jill Boyum, and Cindy Allen, department of cardiology.
Special thanks to the 37 SCAD survivors who traveled from across the U.S., Canada, and Sweden with their families and friends to attend this important weekend. Your energy and commitment to finding answers keeps SCAD Research moving forward to find answers through science.
Now for the drum roll … everyone’s efforts grossed $35,000! SCAD Research has made a donation to the clinical trials underway at Mayo Clinic. Thank you, once again, to all of you who gave so generously and worked hard to raise a record breaking amount.
Now, SCAD Research turns attention to growing our nonprofit organization. Stay tuned for announcements and check for updates as well. And remember, you can “like” us on facebook, and follow on Twitter too.
