Your support makes the search for a cure through groundbreaking heart research possible!
The Cullen Run/Walk began 22 years ago in memory of former Milwaukee Alderman, Steve Cullen who died from a sudden heart attack at age 40. His father, at age 41, and two brothers, ages 53 and 51, also died from heart disease.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Medical College of Wisconsin Cardiovascular Center, which, to date, has donated more than $400,000 to heart disease research and education. Your support will help our researchers further their understanding of how the cardiovascular system functions and advance promising new treatments and potential cures for cardiovascular disease.
