For the past few years The Hope Heart Institute has been honored to be associated with the Kirkland Half Marathon at Juanita Beach Park. While a portion of the profits from the Kirkland Half Marathon benefit The Hope Heart Institute’s research and education programs, this is an even more special event since it takes place on Mother’s Day. Many of the runners and volunteers enjoy participating to honor their mother or as a pre-mother’s day activity since it is over at 11AM. We have really appreciated Google’s partnership and would be honored if some employees would be interested in joining to help battle the number one killer of women within the US.
Each year we invite volunteers to help us at registration, at the finish line to hand out medals, as well as at a variety of other roles. The Kirkland Half Marathon is held on Mother's Day at Juanita Beach Park in Kirkland from 5:30AM-11AM on May 13, 2012. Yes, it is an early morning but there will be coffee provided as well as a great positive energy surrounding this event to battle heart disease within our communities.
We are looking for around 20 volunteers to join us on this day. As always, if you know of people who are interested in participating in the marathon or 5k feel free to encourage them to register. The website for the event is:http://www.promotionevents.com/Kirkland/index.htm
