Get ready to run!

By rawlingsnicole

Bring your family and meet your co-workers at the 5th Annual Heritage Classic 5K Run/Walk, sponsored by Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center and Mayo Clinic Heritage Days.  Check out our promo video to see how awesome this event is! Get ready to run! The Heritage Classic takes place this Sunday, September 25. Events start at 3pm— be sure to come early and visit the Mayo Clinic exhibitors' bbannerooths and special activities for the kids. Run/Walk starts at 4pm.

In 2015 over 1,000 participants joined in the fun, raising more than $15,000 for the Mayo Clinic Hope Fund.  This is the only fund that provides financial assistance for food, lodging and other costs associated with receiving care at every Mayo Clinic location.  The fund was created - and named - by employees who want to give back to our patients and their families. Interested in donating to the Mayo Clinic Hope Fund?  Here's how!

The Heritage Classic is open to all Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System employees, students, retirees, volunteers and their families. Runners and walkers of all abilities and ages are welcome.  For safety and liability reasons, participants are asked to leave their furry, four-legged exercise partners at home. To sign-up, log-in to the Mayo Clinic Leisure & Lifestyle Activites Calendar for Social, Cultural, Recreational, Educational News and Events, or stop by the morning of the event to register! We look forward to seeing you!
