Why join the race? Help save lives.
People with Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH), Homozygous FH 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!
