Heart Breaker Challenge
Get Dirty, Get Active, Give Back
Register for the ONLY mud obstacle run in Essex County where 100% of the proceeds stay local to benefit our community. Join us on Saturday, September 19, 2020 as Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare hosts the 8th annual Heart Breaker Challenge at Malden Park. This untimed 5-7km mud obstacle run is a fun and challenging event for participants of all athletic abilities. Go at your own pace, complete the obstacles of your choice and enjoy a refreshing cold beverage as a reward at the end of the course.
Last year’s Heart Breaker Challenge raised over $125,000 in support of the Cardiac Wellness, Stroke and Pulmonary Rehab Programs. These three programs support hundreds of local patients each year with their recovery and management of their cardiac pulmonary condition. Over 1,600 participants walked, jogged and ran the 7km course with a number of obstacles throughout with the goal of encouraging participants to "break" from their normal routine and change their "heart" with an activity that will be fun and have a positive impact on their health.
Online Registration for the 2020 Heart Breaker Challenge opens February 1st. Be sure to register early to secure your preferred waive time and to take advantage of early bird pricing. The 2019 Heart Breaker SOLD OUT!
