  • Heart Hero Hustle: 5k, 1-mile fun run & CHD Awareness Walk

    LPCF HeartHustle s2 4/2/16 8:00 am

    Join us for LPCF’s inaugural Heart Hero Hustle! This event is a partnership with Ascension 4-H/LSU AgCenter and will be held on April 2, 2016, at Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales. It includes a 5k, 1-mile fun run, and Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Walk. Runners of all ages will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the course around the lake. Men, women, boys and girls are invited to participate. This is a non-competitive race, but a clock will be posted at the finish line for runners to check their times. Every finisher will receive a custom Heart Hero Hustle medal. Louisiana’s first Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Walk featuring heart families from all over the state will take place immediately after the 1-mile fun run ends. Food and drinks will be available as well as post-race activities and entertainment for children. Wear red and blue to show your support for the cause! All proceeds from this event will benefit the Louisiana Pediatric Cardiology Foundation. Register here for the 5k or 1-mile fun run: https://runsignup.com/Race/LA/Gonzales/HeartHeroHustle

We are selling Heart Hero Hustle t-shirts to be worn to the walk. Click here to order a t-shirt!! These are the same t-shirts that come with the 5k and 1-mile fun run registration, so if you’re registered for one of those events, you’ll receive a t-shirt in your race packet.
