Red Tutu Trot

Finally a race for everyone!  

Sunday October 14, 2018
UW Madison Campus
Benefiting Cardiac on Campus

Cardiac on Campus is the student organization at UW Madison coordinating the event. Cardiac on Campus was founded in 2016 after co-founder Brittany Derynda's 20-year-old brother passed away from sudden cardiac arrest following a half marathon. We founded the club in an effort to shed light on preventing sudden cardiac arrests, especially within the college community, where cardiac health is often overlooked.  The student organization has three main goals.

Run for a reason -   The fact is that 9 out of every 10 victims of sudden cardiac arrest die ( One way to easily reduce the number of sudden cardiac deaths each year is efficient and immediate bystander CPR and AED use, which will be the focus of Red Tutu Trot 2018.  All proceeds will go towards offering free monthly CPR and AED education in the Madison area.  Can't make the run?  Please consider a donation.

Kick off Homecoming Week by showing your Badger Pride and raising awareness for cardiac health at the 2018 Red Tutu Trot 5K! Put on by Cardiac on Campus and the Wisconsin Homecoming Committee, this year’s race will be a joint event to celebrate both the Wisco spirit and heart health across campus."
