A one of a kind event to be held McCormick Place at the end of February will raise awareness, and heart rates.
Northwestern's Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute announced they will celebrate National Heart Health Month with the first annual Warm Your Heart Indoor 5k at McCormick Place.
Runners will take their marks at 9 a.m. on Sunday, February 26, inside McCormick Place for a single lap along Chicago's lakefront inside the convention center.
Those interested in participating can register at www.warmyourheart5k.com. Registration is limited to 2,500 runners and closes midnight on Friday, February 22.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The institute, made up of six clinical centers, explores new technologies, drugs, techniques and devices that help prevent and treat heart and vascular disease.
