Mimi's 5k Run -- Proceeds go to UVA Heart and Vascular Center
Running to remember? Running to be healthy? Running to benefit charity? Any of these reasons and more are good running fuel. Race for heart health and the ability to help aid in better treatments for people in our community who are suffering with heart related ailments because all proceeds will contribute to discovering new and better medications and therapies for diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. More information is available here. Mimi's Run began as a way to remember and celebrate a woman, mom, daughter, sister, and friend named Mimi who was generous and loving-- Mimi's story. Not only that, but you get to run through Trump Winery's beautiful property and even get an up close view of the Albemarle house, the old Kluge Chapel, and the Vineyard. The up close view to the mansion is an added bonus because it has not been open to visitors in many years.
