Want to run a 5km obstacle course filled with mud, slopes and other challenges?

Registration closes Friday May 9th at midnight for the second annual Heart Breaker Challenge which takes place on May 24th at Malden Park.

Last year’s event had 1,530 participants and 1,300 spectators and raised over $61,000
for the Cardiac Wellness & Pulmonary Rehab Centre at Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare’s Tayfour Campus.

“100 per cent of the funds raised support these two great programs right here in our community,” says Hotel Dieu’s Jason Petro. “Heart Breaker is about having fun, and challenging yourself and your fellow Heart Breakers while promoting an active lifestyle.”

Participants can enter in teams of four and the Heart Breaker Challenge is not a timed event. Participants can choose to walk, jog or run at their own pass, setting their own personal goals.

Registration for the event closes tonight at midnight. You can register by visiting www.heartbreakerchallenge.com.
