Bend Memorial Clinic is proud to present the 5th Annual Tour for the Heart. This annual fun 5km XC ski or snowshoe tour to raise awareness that heart disease is the #1 cause of death for women. An individual's risk for heart disease can be lowered by over 80% by leading a healthy lifestyle -- and exercise is one of the keys to lowering that risk.
The Tour for the Heart covers a beautiful Oregon Cascades route suitable for participants of all ages and abilities (and yes, men & boys of all ages are also very welcome!).
The Tour also features music, yummy treats, and more. Costumes are encouraged, with prizes for the most creative ensembles. Participate alone or recruit your friends, coworkers and family to sign up for the Group Challenge to enjoy for a great day on the snow and qualify for an extra special drawing.
Special thanks to all event sponsors and partners: Bend Memorial Clinic; The Center for Orthopedic & Neurosurgical Care/Research; Therapeutic Associates; Mt Bachelor Nordic Center; Mt Bachelor Sports Education Foundation; and numerous ski/snowshoe retail/industry partners. The Tour for the Heart is produced by the non-profit XC Oregon race team as a gift to the health and well-being of our community. A portion of the course is located in the Deschutes National Forest.
Net proceeds benefit the Oregon chapter of the American Heart Association.
