Lyman Moore’s Annual HyperHeart 5k Set for May 21
Posted on 05/18/2016
This is the image for the news article titled Lyman Moore’s Annual HyperHeart 5k Set for May 21 Lyman Moore Middle School's third annual HyperHeart 5k race will take place on Saturday, May 21 – thanks again to two former Moore students concerned about heart health.

Karina Boothe and Lauren Paradise, formerly students at Moore and now ninth-graders at Portland High School, will host the event, which raises money for the American Heart Association.

The race was created by the two students to raise funds for research and awareness for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a heart condition that has affected their families.

Proceeds from the race support the American Heart Association to cover testing, research, and treatment expenses for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a condition that involves a thickened heart muscle.

The race is a walk/run that starts at 9:30 a.m. but participants are urged to come early to register.  The cost is $25/adult, $15/student, no family pays more than $60. For more information, or to reserve a t-shirt, email hyperheart5k@gmail.com.

Participants should gather at Lyman Moore, located at 171 Auburn Street. The course runs through nearby neighborhoods. Doughnuts and coffee will be available.
