SCADaddle 5K

  • Danada Forest Preserve 3S580 Naperville Rd Wheaton, IL (map)

Join us for our 4th run/walk to raise money for Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) research. Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) is a cause of a heart attack and death not associated with the typical risk factors of heart disease.
Unlike the typical heart attack, SCAD is relatively uncommon and often impacts younger, otherwise healthy individuals. SCAD occurs more often in women than men. Research is needed to answer fundamental questions such as what causes SCAD and what are the best treatment options.
The 5K run/walk will take place on an USATF Certified crushed limestone course. The course winds through the preserve’s prairie, woodland, and marsh habitats.
All participants who register by April 18, 2015 will receive a 5K t-shirt. We cannot guarantee a t-shirt to those who register after April 18.
In addition to registering, please consider forming a team and/or creating a personal fundraising webpage, with a fundraising goal. You can ask your family, friends, and co-workers to donate money towards your goal and to post a message of encouragement. You may want to name and dedicate your team or fundraising page to someone who has experienced a SCAD event.
