When: Sunday, August 19, 2018
Where: Koret Plaza, 326 Galvez Street Stanford, CA 94305
Join us for the Stanford Medicine MyHeart Counts 5K & 10K – our annual walk/run celebrating life, heart health, and happiness. We invite you to put together a team of friends and family to take down heart disease. We’ll be walking and running on Stanford campus on Sunday, August 19th at 8 am. Whether you walk a 5k, run a 10k, or cheer on your little one in the 50m dash, this family-friendly, fun-filled event has something for everyone.
Even better, you can raise money for great causes – like education and screening programs for heart disease, providing heart disease tests for those in need, and advancing cutting-edge research to prevent or cure heart diseases that still take too many, too early. Want to help in the fight to stop heart disease? Join us on August 19th!

About the MyHeart Counts App
In March 2015, along with Apple Inc, we launched the MyHeart Counts study, a first-in-the-world research study entirely implemented on the iPhone that within a few weeks became the fastest recruiting study in the world. With partners, we pioneered a new way to do heart research – one where the participant is at the center, controlling and donating their own data for the betterment of all humankind. Since then the study has grown and grown to return more and more results to participants. We now offer the option of including your genetic data from 23andMe. As well as signing up for the 5k/10k, if you have an iPhone, we invite you to join the MyHeart Counts study by signing up at the Apple app store here.
