CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital in Katy invites the surrounding communities to participate in the fifth annual Heart of Katy Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, Feb. 12, where every dollar raised will support Katy’s only comprehensive heart program at CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital.
The sanctioned, certified, chip-timed 5K Fun Run and Walk event will include a 5K Run, 1 Mile Kids Run, a 1 Mile Family Walk/Run, race awards and an after party with food, music and athletic massages. Awards will be given to the top three male and female participants in each category, to every 1-Mile Kids Run participant and to the overall Fun Run/Walk event winner.
“With heart disease on the rise and Katy and the Greater Houston area recently being dubbed the third most stressed out city in America, CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital is more and more aware of – and more and more committed to – encouraging healthy living,” said Dana Mersiovsky, chief development officer at CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital. “We’re proud to be Katy’s only comprehensive heart program, and the Heart of Katy Fun Run/Walk is a great way to share our successes with our community and ‘walk’ together into a more heart-healthy future.”
The fun-filled, family-friendly day will begin at 7 a.m. at CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital, 701 S. Fry Road in Katy, with late registration and packet pick-up. Event announcements and race line-up starts at 8 a.m., and the 1 Mile Kids Run for ages 12 and under begins at 8:15 a.m., followed by the 5K Run at 8:30 a.m. and Family Walk/Run at 9:15 a.m. Kids Zone sponsor Chick-Fil-A will provide food during the after party, and KILT-FM 100.3 and MIX 96.5 will provide commentary, music and entertainment. Event participants will enjoy post-race leg stretches and calf massages provided by CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital Sports Medicine, and a 10:30 a.m. performance by the Morton Ranch High School Maverick Belles dance team.
