Heart to Start Community

In 2012, we decided to start walking the talk - and running it too. Each week during the cold, wet Portland winter, we meet our patients and community members at a local track to train together for the family-friendly Providence Heart to Start 5k and 10k. Along the way, we wrote a book, started a Facebook community, and inspired a movement in Newberg, Spokane, Medford and Walla Walla. Click here to learn more about our team.

Heart to Start - Portland Season 6 begins in November! Training schedule officially starts the week of November 12th and our weekly group training kicks off Saturday, November 18th at 9am - group training will take place on the track at Catlin Gabel School.



Let us know you are participating and take the couple minutes to sign up - follow along in-person at group workouts or virtually and join us at the goal race or pick another near your home town.

Our goal event will take place on Sunday, February 11th. You can register here for the Providence Heart To Start 5k, 10k walk/run or the Heart Breaker Half.
