WHY YOU SHOULD RUN
The chip timed 5K race takes place on the beautiful UW Madison Campus. The race begins and ends on the Howard Temin Lakeshore Path which runs along lake Mendota. The route is flat and scenic, perfect for runners or walkers.
“Cardiac on Campus is the student organization at UW Madison coordinating the event. Cardiac on Campus was founded in 2016 after co-founder Brittany Derynda’s 20-year-old brother passed away from sudden cardiac arrest following a half marathon. We founded the club in an effort to shed light on preventing sudden cardiac arrests, especially within the college community, where cardiac health is often overlooked. The student organization has three main goals.”
Cardiac on Campus and the Wisconsin Homecoming Committee are teaming up to present the 4th annual Red Tutu Trot
“Run for a reason – The fact is that 9 out of every 10 victims of sudden cardiac arrest die (http://www.sca-aware.org/about-sca). One way to easily reduce the number of sudden cardiac deaths each year is efficient and immediate bystander CPR and AED use, which will be the focus of Red Tutu Trot 2016. All proceeds will go towards offering free monthly CPR and AED education in the Madison area. Can’t make the run? Please consider a donation.
