“Jump Start Your Heart was truly an inspiration. As a mother, I am very well aware of congenital heart defects and this is a cause that is in much need of funding, research and support. The event was well-organized, lots of fun and the scenery was beautiful being right along the Bay. ”
“This 5k was not only challenging with all the (optional) fitness stations in the sand but I was mostly impressed with the how well the heats were organized. I liked the costume aspect as well which made it fun for teams and friends to come together for such a good cause. “
“I had no idea what Jump Start Your Heart was all about when I signed up. I thought it was just another Valentine’s Day 5k. However, it is much more than that with 100% proceeds going to the Children’s Heart Foundation who directly fund research for congenital heart defects, which I was sad to learn is the world’s #1 heart defect. This is a great run for a great cause.
