First 5K for SCAD Research begins, May 5, 2012.

With a cut of the ribbon, the first 5K walk to raise awareness and funds for spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) research begins. With 25 SCAD survivors in attendance, the crowd of 175 kicked off a joyful day in honor of those not with us, and raised more than $20,000, which goes directly to funding research of this commonly misdiagnosed form of heart attack.

Walks were held in UK, Canada, Colorado, and California at the same time.

Strong presence in UK of SCAD solidarity!
