Race to Save More Heart 2024

Registration Opens: April 1
Race Dates: April 21 – June 30

Are you ready?

It’s time for our annual virtual Race to Save More Hearts! Mark your calendars to join us in raising funds and awareness! Registration kicks off on April 1 and the race runs from April 21 through June 30.
Join people around the world to help us fight to save generations of families from heart disease and stroke caused by familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) or high lipoprotein(a), also known as Lp(a).
Individuals and teams will choose their own challenge event from hiking, to walking, to swimming or climbing stairs. The possibilities are limitless - you just need your imagination and a “can do” attitude. Race in honor or in memory of a loved one, someone you know, or because you care about making a difference in the lives of others.

The Family Heart Foundation will cheer you on, give you a virtual high five, and provide the support you need to make your #RaceToSaveMoreHearts event a success.

Why join the race? Help save lives.

People with Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH), Homozygous FH (HoFH) and elevated lipoprotein(a), also known as Lp(a), are at high risk for early heart attack and stroke. Many already have cardiovascular disease due to a missed or delayed diagnosis. Less than 25% of those with FH are achieving target LDL cholesterol levels, and less than 1% of people have never even had their Lp(a) checked.

No child should lose a parent too soon from preventable heart disease and no parent should have to worry that their child will suffer the same fate as generations before them. Let’s make sure everyone is diagnosed early and has the chance to live free of heart attacks and strokes. Show your support for people living with genetic lipid disorders.

Run, walk, jump, swim. It’s up to you!

Whatever challenge you choose, set a goal and raise awareness and funds to win the #RacetoSaveMoreHearts! Your support will help us do more to save more!

Get ready for your race – Registration opens April 1st!
