Heart To Start - A Community Working Together

In 2012, we decided to start walking the talk - and running it too. Since then, we've written a book, started a Facebook community, and inspired a movement in Portland, Medford, Hood River, Walla Walla, Newberg and Spokane. That inspiration has brought even more movement through active community engagement with our Heal It Forward initiative - because we believe doing good makes you feel better.

Each of our training locations follow a similar path where we meet our patients and community members at a local track to train together for a family-friendly 5k run/walk. Rather than focusing on numbers and times, we encourage taking several small steps (i.e. weekly training) and working toward a remarkable finish (i.e. goal event) where we celebrate as a community.
