5K Run/Walk

Tie on your sneakers & help raise funds for hearts in need during our 2nd Annual *Virtual* 5K Run/Walk!

Our event takes place over 7 days—Saturday, May 18 - Saturday, May 25—to provide a convenient, healthy, and exciting opportunity for the greater Heart Failure community to unite in supporting Heart Failure patients in need.


Our virtual event format and short 5k (3.1m) distance make participation easy for everyone—regardless of athletic ability or geographic location—to participate. Complete the distance anywhere you choose over the 7 days. (*Feel free to split the distance over multiple days.)


Round up your friends and family, register to walk/run, kickstart your fundraising, fire up your favorite fitness app, track your distance, and share the excitement of "crossing the finish line" with our virtual audience.

*NEW THIS YEAR: Every participant raising $1K+ will get a branded HeartBrothers hat for the walk. Teams will also receive 1 hat for every $1K raised.

Q: How do I submit my final mileage/distance?​

A. Please take a screenshot of the distance you've tracked with your smartphone and share it on social media using the hashtags #heartbrothers5K and #heartfailureawareness to officially "cross the finish line". Additionally, we would appreciate it if you could email any photos you take while on the course to

Q: Is there a minimum fundraising Requirement?​

A. No, but we have set an individual runner/walker fundraising goal of $300. This equates to having 10 friends or family members supporting with a $30 donation. Each team should also aim to fundraise $300 per team member (ie: 3 team members would have a fundraising goal of $900).

Q: Do I have to participate as part of a team?​

A: Nope! Individual walkers/runners are welcome. Click the red VISIT THE EVENT WEBSITE button above, and then the blue & white "FUNDRAISE" button to register. You can/should also click the red HOW TO: INDIVIDUAL button above for a downloadable one-sheet on getting set up for the event.


A. There are many great apps out there for iPhone and Android users. Our favorite four *free* apps are listed below with links to download onto your smartphone. In addition to tracking your 5k (3.1m) distance, these apps also track duration, pace, speed, elevation, calories, and route.

Q: How do i share my participation & progress with my network?

A. Social media and email are the two best avenues. Our event platform GiveButter makes getting set up as a fundraiser easy and sharing your fundraising page to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and email. When sharing to social media, please include our two hashtags in your caption: #heartbrothers5k & #heartfailureawareness. Please also tag the HeartBrothers, using our handle (listed below).
