Get Moving to Support Vital (SCAD) Research
Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) is a life-threatening condition in which a tear occurs in the arterial wall of the heart. This tear blocks blood flow to the heart causing a heart attack, sudden cardiac arrest and sometimes death. Although SCAD is considered a rare condition, it is one of the leading causes of heart attacks in young women under 50 who are otherwise healthy and who have few or no risk factors for heart disease.
Join us for our 2nd annual SCAD 5K Fun Run/Walk along Jericho Beach in support the Canadian SCAD Study to advance our knowledge and management of this rare and challenging condition.
This event is also a platform to build awareness and for the SCAD community to come together, share knowledge and empower each other. We welcome all patients, friends, families, health care providers and supporters to join us.
