The 5K raised money for Mayo Clinic for SCAD research.
Women in red hats lined up in front of the people who would be running in the 5K race and one-mile walk.
The women in hats weren't just survivors of Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection, they were also running or walking in the SCADaddle 5K race and one-mile walk. The race took place on March 29 at Payne Park. There were around 150 people participating in the event to benefit the Mayo Clinic for SCAD research.
SCAD is an emergency condition that occurs when a tear forms in a blood vessel in the heart. As blood flow is slowed or blocked entirely, the result can be a heart attack or heart rhythm abnormalities, both of which can be fatal.
