Palmer Chiropractic Clinics Healthy Heart Run a big success

The first Healthy Heart Run to have Palmer Chiropractic Clinics as the title sponsor was an overwhelming success. It set a record with more than 400 runners and walkers taking part in the Healthy Heart 1 mile, 5K and 10K. Filling the City Center Complex in Port Orange with participants, families and friends, the event was a nice complement to the Florida Campus Homecoming activities occurring right next door.

Now in its seventh year, the run is designed to bring about awareness of heart disease and its prevention. Beneficiaries of the event are the YMCA and Run For a Cause, a non-profit fundraising organization. The race also enables people of all ages and fitness levels to participate, such as a man in his late eighties at this year’s run who used a walker and a mother of three who pushed her children in a stroller over the one-mile course.

Palmer’s Florida Campus Sports Council provided care to many of the runners before and after the event. Not only was Palmer a proud sponsor, but one of its own students, Craig Henry, at left, finished first overall in the 5K. In 2011, the Palmer Clinics will continue in their role as title sponsor for the Healthy Heart Run.
