2021 American Heart Association Run/Walk – Radiothon
To participate in 2021 – Please submit this form by Monday, February 15th.
Due to COVID-19, the Heart Radiothon will look a little different in 2021 and we invite you to be a part of this event. Many of you have participated by being interview guests on the Radiothon and some have competed in the treadmill challenge as well. Regardless of your past participation, you are welcome to participate in the interviews and/or the treadmill challenge. Please read over the details for each area and let us know if you would like to be involved.
Radio Interviews: Rather than all interviews taking place on Friday and Saturday (as we’ve done in the past), interviews will now be pre-recorded and played on the air from March 5th to May 15th.
Interviews would require about ½ hour of your time and would air on WIBX 950AM. Interviews must relate to the heart and living a heart healthy lifestyle. Interviews can also address runners and walkers and how to stay healthy for the Heart Run/Walk in May. This is a great way to promote your practice in the community.
Interviews will take place February 15th – 26th
Interviews will be by phone – not in person
Treadmill Challenge: Previously, SDMG was only allowed to enter 2 challengers into the Treadmill Challenge. This year, since the challenge will be mainly virtual, we are able to enter more than 2 challengers. We can also have teams of treadmill challengers. Challengers should set their fundraising goal at $500, and raise as close as they can to their goal. Fundraising can take place from March 5th to April 30th.
If we receive enough interest, SDMG could potentially set up 2 teams of challengers. We may set aside a day and time to have all challengers compete head to head in a live, virtual fundraising treadmill challenge for SDMG. This event is meant to be fun and to promote a heart healthy lifestyle, while raising funds for the American Heart Association.
