RUNNING FOR A CAUSE: Proceeds from this year’s Triple Creek Color Dash will be going towards the Three Rivers Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Scholarship Fund. Heart disease remains the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. Education, intervention, and risk factor modification are essential in saving lives. Cardiac Rehabilitation has been proven to decrease the risk of recurring cardiac events and decrease mortality rates. Our scholarship funds are used for those who need Cardiac Rehabilitation and may not be insured or need assistance with co-pays and deductibles. Our goal is provide our nationally certified program to members of our community who would otherwise not be able to afford to participate.
CHILDREN: Children five years and under are free. They must be with a registered adult. A t-shirt and/or color packet can be purchased for them under the STORE tab at the top of the page. Strollers are allowed, just remember we will be throwing color so bring towels to clean off!
