Save the Date for the 18th Annual Steve Cullen
Healthy Heart Club Run/Walk
FEBRUARY 15TH, 2014
The Medical College of Wisconsin Cardiovascular Center is affiliated with the Steve Cullen Healthy Heart Club Run/Walk, which annually supports research to benefit heart diseases.
The Cullen Run/Walk began 17 years ago in memory of former Milwaukee Alderman, Steve Cullen who died of a sudden heart attack at the age of 40. His father, at age 41, and two brothers, ages 53 and 51, also died from heart disease.
The Cullen Run & Walk has grown in attendance by more than 500 percent since its inception, encouraging heart-healthy lifestyles for participants, their families and friends. It has contributed more than $325,000 to cardiovascular research and awareness.
The Steve Cullen Healthy Heart Club Run/Walk includes an 8K run or 2-mile family-fun run/walk following a scenic path along Underwood Parkway in Wauwatosa, beginning at the Wil-O-Way Underwood Recreation Center, 10602 Underwood Parkway. Easily accessible from I-94, Highway 45 and Highway 100, the course passes a golf course, crosses a river and goes through one of Milwaukee County's prettiest parks. Sponsored by the Cullen family and the Badgerland Striders, the event includes famous Cullen Family & Friends Chili, refreshments, food and live music for the entire family.
