HART & Sole Treadmill Walk-a-Thon runs this Saturday

A ten-hour HART & Sole Treadmill Walk-a-Thon benefitting the National HART Foundations will run this Saturday, March 27 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the cardiogirl boutique fitness for women, 24003 Newhall Ranch Rd., Santa Clarita 91355-5702.

Santa Clarita Valley volunteers will take to the treadmills to raise funds for training local high school students in CPR and the use of AEDs (automated external defibrillators).

When an individual experiences sudden cardiac arrest, their chances of survival decrease 10% for every minute between the attack and when the hearts beat is restored. Knowing CPR and the use of an AED (when available) is a critical life-saving skill for teens and adults.

Sponsored by cardiogirl, a women-only fitness facility located in the new Bridgeport Marketplace, the event will benefit the National HART Foundations new training program in the Wm. S. Hart School District.

Teams sponsored by local groups will walk for an hour.

Individuals wishing to sponsor a team or walk will receive two-week complimentary memberships for both cardiogirl and Summers Indoor Tanning for their $20 donation. All donations are tax deductible.
