Everyone Has A Heart

December 14, 2012

This Saturday….

 

 

 

December 15th

 

 

Will be our 27th year….

 

 

For the Haddon Holiday Heart Run.

 

 

 

 

We have been thru

 

 

Snow…..

 

 

Sleet…..

 

 

Rain…..

 

 

Biting Cold….

 

 

Unexpected warmth….

 

 

 

Yet each year

 

 

The diehard runners

 

 

Keep coming back

 

 

 

When we setup this race

 

 

27 years ago

 

 

That was our intention

 

 

 

 

If you are a runner

 

 

There are a slew of races

 

 

You may choose from

 

 

 

 

Beginning in April

 

 

Right on thru Thanksgiving

 

 

 

 

Christmas is where we saw our opportunity

 

 

 

Let’s have a Holiday Heart Run

 

 

Right before Christmas

 

 

 

 

You will only find

 

 

The truly diehard runners participating

 

 

 

 

 

Depending on the weather

 

 

We have had anywhere from

 

 

250 up to 400+ runners

 

 

Each year

 

 

 

 

 

Santa always shows up

 

 

 

 

His little elf……

 

 

Bernie Parent

 

 

Has been our

 

 

Honorary Chairman

 

 

For the last 10 years

 

 

 

 

This year we have…….

 

 

A special surprise

 

 

At the finish line.

 

 

 

You will have to be there to find out

 

 

 

 

I’m not tellin…..

 

 

 

 

Over the last 26 years

 

 

Our Haddon Holiday Heart Run

 

 

Has raised well over

 

 

$300,000

 

 

For the American Heart Association

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s a few facts you may not be aware of….

 

 

 

 

Did You Know That…..

 

 

 

“More than 2,200 Americans die

 

Of cardiovascular diseases each day

 

 

 

 

That’s one person every 39 seconds.

 

 

 

 

On average, someone in the United States

 

 

 

 

Has a stroke every 40 seconds

 

 

 

 

And a stroke-related death occurs

 

 

About every four minutes.”

 

 

 

 

Those are shocking numbers

 

 

 

 

Thru the Haddon Holiday Heart Run

 

 

We look to raise awareness

 

 

 

All dollars benefit

 

 

The American Heart Association’s

 

 

Research and Education Programs

 

 

 

 

Since 1949, the American Heart Association

 

 

Has spent more than $3.4 billion…..

 

 

Second only to the federal government….

 

 

On research to increase our knowledge

 

 

 

About cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
