2014 Run For Your Life!

What, Where and When?

Run for your Life, presented by Heart of the Valley Runners, celebrates our ability to get out and move to the best of our abilities. The run will have two levels: a 4-mile trail run, and a 2 kilometer fun run/walk on an accessible paved path. It will be held in Willamette Park on Sunday, September 21 at 9:00 a.m. The trail course will appeal to all: runners, walkers and people with disabilities.


The event will raise awareness of multiple sclerosis. Proceeds will support the critical work of the Oregon State University Multiple Sclerosis Exercise Program. For 15 years this program has been providing individualized physical activity instruction free of charge for people with multiple sclerosis (MS).
