Help us raise awareness for the millions of people living with PAD!

September is PAD awareness month. Peripheral Artery Disease, or PAD, is a common problem affecting 8-12 million people in the US. People with PAD have a buildup of fatty deposits in their arteries. The buildup reduces blood flow to the limbs which causes symptoms like pain when walking. PAD can be a sign that there is a more widespread problem. The buildup can also reduce blood flow to your heart, brain, and lungs.

PAD is often missed by doctors, which can lead to amputation or even death. Research shows that about 35% of people with PAD are not yet diagnosed.

This September, help Vascular Cures and Medtronic spread the word about PAD. Walk, run, or wheel 10K over 10 days. Log your miles here between September 19th and September 28th. You can submit a photo to the finisher's gallery to show off your hard work! Race shirts are available for $30. We can't wait to see your virtual finish!
