The event will consist of Giox ambassadors, Go Red volunteers, walkers, runners, and fitness enthusiasts coming together to help raise awareness about heart disease and strokes in women, as well as raise funds for the campaign. For every mile a participant walks or runs, Giox will donate $10 to the American Heart Association. 

Participants will wear red in solidarity and meet at Kyle Park, located at 500 S. 1st Street. The event is set to start at 3 p.m.

If one cannot make it in person, they are able to download the Giox app and still help raise money for a great cause.
