2022 West Coast 5k SCADaddle© for Research
6th Annual West Coast/San Diego
5K SCADaddle© for Research
Saturday April 23, 2022
Crown Point Park
San Diego, California
Quick Links to 5K Weekend
Join us at our 6th annual 5K SCADaddle to raise awareness and funds for much needed research on the #1 cause of heart attacks in women under age 50 – spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD).
Unlike the traditional heart attack, a SCAD happens when a sudden tear occurs within the layers of one or more arteries to the heart. This tear blocks blood flow to the heart causing a heart attack, abnormal heart rhythms and sometimes sudden death. Although less common, SCAD can impact men too.
The SCADaddle© timed Run/Walk will take place on the east side of Crown Point Park on Mission Bay starting at 9:00 am. Enjoy the course along the bay on the bay side walkway.
Afterwards, relax and enjoy a gourmet pizza meal made on the premises, silk aerial demonstration, vendor booths and fun for the whole family while raising funds for much needed research.
Register by April 8 to guarantee this year’s t-shirt.
