The Lavell Edwards Memorial 5K, obstacle course and heart fair is a fun way to honor Lavell Edwards, who died of heart disease, by increasing awareness in our community that heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the United States. Cardiovascular disease caused 1 of 3 deaths in 2016. An American will have a heart attack every 40 seconds. American Heart Association tracks “Life’s Simple 7” risk factors—most of which can be modified to help reduce our chance of dying from heart disease.
The event is hosted by Brigham Young University Student Athlete Council in partnership with Intermountain Utah Valley Hospital. Come honor LaVell and learn how you can modify your risk factors to prevent heart disease for you and your loved ones.
We encourage our runners to “Race in Honor” of a loved one who has fought or who is fighting heart disease. Each person will run for their own reason—and we’d love to hear about it? Connect with us and share your experiences using hashtag #LEM5K #preventheartdisease
