Children to take part in Mini Heart Run April 25
Anchorage, Alaska – Providence Center for Childhood Development preschool children will take part in the 13th annual Mini Heart Run from 10 to 11 a.m. April 25 at the Providence Health Park courtyard.
The event–organized by the Providence Center for Childhood Development in partnership with the American Heart Association–is designed to encourage children to stay active by promoting a heart-healthy lifestyle.
“The children have been learning about healthy hearts and have been practicing running to condition for the race,” said Margaret Bauer, director, Work Life Services, Providence Health & Services Alaska. “The children will also be given an opportunity to donate money to the American Heart Association, which is a lesson in giving to the community.”
