     Franciscan Health Michigan City is the Presenting Sponsor in the Bolt for Heart Family 5K Run/Walk on September 8th. This 5K Family Run/Walk event will benefit LaPorte County by placing life saving AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) in LaPorte County law enforcement vehicles in an effort to help save people who experience sudden cardiac arrest. The Bolt for the Heart organization has placed nearly 2000 AEDs in Indiana, with the goal of placing an additional 150 AEDs in the LaPorte County area.   

Your participation in the run, or any donation you can make to the campaign, will further this cause and help us purchase invaluable AEDs devices to save lives. It is a worthy cause and one that Franciscan Health is strongly committed to, so we hope you will consider participating in the race/walk. We already have several early registrants, so let’s keep the momentum going for this great cause!

It will take place at beautiful Washington Park in Michigan City! Individual entries are $30 each. You will receive a t-shirt and commemorative medal if you register during the “early registration” period. If you run/walk with your family, you can buy 4 registrations and get a fifth walker free! (Shirts and medals also available during “early registration” period for families)

     Veterans, under 5 and over 75 are free, but must register (t-shirts available for purchase). There is even an option to do a virtual race! See link below for registration options.
