Karen's Walk and 5k Run

Sponsored By: Phi Sigma Pi National Honors Fraternity

Add to Google Calendar

Karen's Walk began over 12 years ago when Karen Decker, a close friend of the fraternity passed away from postpartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM), a rare heart disease that affects mostly pregnant women. Karen was only 22 years old and left behind her six-week-old daughter, Hannah. In the beginning, Phi Sigma Pi created the Walk for Hannah, meant to raise money for Hannah's medical costs. The Walk for Hannah subsequently became Karen's Walk, and has since raised over $25,000 for cardiomyopathy research, which goes to benefit a fund at the University of Rochester Medical Center. 2014 marks the 12th Annual Karen's Walk. This year, our goal is to attract at least 150 participants and raise $2500. In addition to meeting our fundraising goal, we hope that the 5K will raise awareness for cardiomyopathy as it affects the lives of many. It is also Phi Sigma Pi's goal to promote exercise and the practice of living a healthy lifestyle on campus and in the Rochester community. Karen's Walk is entirely student run and our cause is something that Phi Sigma Pi is extremely passionate about. Please visit karenswalk.org for registration and race information.
