The Don Reilly Race the Parks Cardiac Run/Walk is now in its 11th year of honoring the memory of Don Reilly, increasing awareness of heart disease and raising funds for heart-related community programs.

The 11th Annual Don Reilly Cardiac Run/Walk will be held, rain or shine, on Saturday, Sept. 23 beginning at 8 a.m. by the family of Don Reilly. Registration will begin at 7 a.m.

There will be a 10K/5K run, a 5K walk and a Kids Fun Run. The start and finish of the adult events will be at Swan City Park, South University Avenue in Beaver Dam, and the Kids Fun Run will go through the Park. The early bird registration fee is $35 prior to Aug. 19, and the fee is $40 after Aug. 19. The Kids Fun Run is $15.

The importance of preventing and managing heart disease is a cause dear to the family of Don Reilly, and all proceeds of the event will benefit the Beaver Dam Community Hospitals Foundation, Inc. Automated External Defibrillator and Cardiac Rehab funds.

Runners, walkers and Kids Run participants who register by Aug. 19 are guaranteed a race T-shirt. Shirts are not guaranteed for registrations after Aug. 19 and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Awards are given to the top male and female finishers in the 10k and 5k runs and finisher medals will be given to all 10k and 5k runners and 5k walkers.

There is no age limit, but bikes, roller blades, "heelies," and skateboards will not be permitted. Complimentary refreshments will be available for participants after the race.
