The Tift Regional Medical Center (TRMC) Foundation will be holding its 13th annual “Stepping Out for Your Heart” 5K Road Race, One Mile Fun Run/Walk and Champions’ Walk on Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Northeast Campus of Tift County High School (TCHS). All proceeds will benefit the foundation's Heart Safe Community program and donations are tax-deductible.
“This event is designed to promote great heart health,” said Mandy Brooks, TRMC Foundation executive director. “We also use this opportunity to salute our Champions. We consider any local resident who has been diagnosed with heart disease and/or stroke a Champion, and we would love for them to participate in an honorary walk at Stepping Out.”
The 5K Run will begin at 8:00 a.m., followed by the Champions’ Fun Walk at 8:45 a.m., the One Mile Fun Run and Walk at 9:00 a.m. and an awards ceremony at 9:15 a.m. To register or for more information, call 229-391-3310 or visit www.active.com and use the keywords: Stepping Out for Your Heart.

“Stepping Out benefits the Foundation’s Heart Safe Community program, which provides 12-lead EKG units to area emergency medical services,” said Brooks. “It also provides funding to economically-disadvantaged patients needing cardiac rehabilitation after a heart event.”
