Join the Georgia Arrhythmia Foundation for a virtual S.C.A.R.E. 5K or 1 Mile Wellness Walk !

The Georgia Arrhythmia Foundation, a 501c3, is proud to host our first virtual S.C.A.R.E. (Sudden Cardiac Arrest Research & Education) Event.   The S.C.A.R.E. 5K is our annual fundraiser, with all proceeds going to placing AEDs and teaching CPR & AED use. Due to COVID-19, our 10th anniversary race will be in virtual format during Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month (October) and will be held in person during Heart Month (February 2021).

The virtual 5K will run from October 17th, 2020 to October 31, 2020.   Participants will have two weeks to submit their time. Runners can complete the 5K along any route that equals 5K any time between those dates, recording and submitting their times using the IYR mobile app.

All runners will receive a commemorative S.C.A.R.E. 5K t-shirt and will have the chance to win prizes.   Prizes will be drawn randomly from all participants.

Runners, joggers, and walkers of all levels are welcome.
