Meetings and Event Participation

HEART members gather at organized running events to socialize and celebrate our active recovery and commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Our annual meetings are centered around regional marathon events where members have options to participate on relay teams or as individuals at the half and full marathon distances. These annual meetings also involve family-friendly social events, providing HEART members and those close to them an opportunity to develop and strengthen friendships. Our goal at annual meetings is to convene as many HEART members as we can. Additionally, members meet less formally on an interim basis at other events for the opportunity to meet, celebrate and participate.
