We just concluded our fourth annual Bolt for the Heart Family 5K run in Carmel on Thanksgiving morning. We had a no snow, no rain but a perfect 50=degree day, as I’m very happy to report a record day!
We had 1,935 participants (a record) which is a 32 percent growth over 2014. We raised over $140,000 (another record) and had a goal of buying 50 AEDs for donation to the Indiana State Police Trooper cars. We achieved that goal of 50 AEDs and once we receive all final sponsorship checks and all expenses paid, we may be able to achieve a total of 65 to 70 AEDs.
This day does not happen without the help of our board of directors, the many volunteers that did all of the heavy lifting and for our sponsors.
