Are you planning on lacing up your runners for the 2013 Scotiabank Calgary Marathon on Sunday, May 26? For the first time ever, the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta will be raising funds at the Calgary Marathon Weekend through the Calgary Health Trust.
In addition to a full marathon, you can sign up to run a half marathon, 10K run, 5K run/walk, and a 1K kids run. Select the option right for you, and if uncertain, consult your physician.
Dollars raised from the 2013 Calgary Marathon Weekend will go towards the new Libin Institute Cardiac Hybrid Operating Room, which is to be located in the McCaig Tower on the Foothills campus. Interested participants can select “Calgary Health Trust” from a drop down menu at the time of registration, allowing them to directly contribute to the cause and/or raise funds towards the Libin Institute.
Make sure to also look for the Libin Institute information booth from May 23-25 at the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon Health and Wellness Expo at the Big Four building in Stampede Park before race day.
