Step Up 4 Cardiac Health

The event involves participants doing as many “laps” as they can of the 596-step course. Each lap takes approximately seven minutes to complete, and can be done as a fun run or obstacle-style race.

Participants collect pledges, with the proceeds going towards cardiac health at the hospital.
