Red Tutu Trot

Finally a race for everyone!  

October 6, 2019

UW Madison Lot 60
Benefiting Cardiac on Campus

Support a cause close to our hearts and show off your Badger spirit! Cardiac on Campus and the Wisconsin Homecoming Committee are teaming up to present the Red Tutu Trot 5K, a run/walk that will take you along the beautiful Howard Temin Lakeshore path, starting and ending near UW Lot 60. All proceeds from the race will be used to put on CPR/AED certification classes for free in the Madison community. Additionally, funds raised will help us place AEDs in UW Madison residence halls. The Red Tutu Trot is the perfect event for students, families and Badger fans alike! Join us to raise awareness for cardiac health, learn some CPR technique and maybe get a high-five from Bucky Badger in the process! See you October 6th!

Why You Should Run
Cardiac on Campus is a UW student org that was founded in 2016 after student Brittany Derynda’s 20-year-old brother passed away from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) following a half marathon. The organization attempts to shed light on SCA prevention and cardiac health as a whole. You might not realize, but for 90% of its victims, SCA is fatal. Increasing bystander CPR and AED knowledge is our best solution for lowering this grim statistic. Help Cardiac on Campus raise awareness about SCA and funds to put on free CPR and AED certification classes! Thanks for your time and support!
