JACKSON, WY—After Shirley Kyle passed away from a heart attack in 2005, her daughter created a run in her honor. Lace up your running or walking shoes Saturday, June 16 for Shirley’s Heart Run.
Shirley’s Heart Run raises awareness of the importance of detecting heart disease signs early, as well as signs of a heart attack. Funds from the day support St. John’s Hospital Foundation’s Cardiology Fund, which goes toward heart-related programs like CPR training, new portable defibrillators, and assistance for cardiac patients who cannot afford their care.
The run or walk is a scenic out-and-back course along the Snake River. The course begins and ends at R Park in Wilson and follows a mellow gravel road with a view of the Tetons on the way out.
The fun begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 16. A $20 pre-registration fee includes giveaways, a raffle ticket, and treats from e. Leaven and Snake River Roasting.
