LEWISTON – Mount St. Mary’s Hospital will host its fifth annual “Cardio Craze” from 8 to 11 a.m. Sept. 13 in Academy Park.

A 1.8 mile wellness walk, which takes walkers from Artpark through the neighborhood streets in the Village, will be the highlight of the event. The walk is a fundraiser for the Cardiology Department of Mount St. Mary’s Hospital and is open to the public.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. with the walk starting at 9 a.m. Walkers are encouraged to solicit sponsors, but there is no charge to participate. Anyone with $20 or more in donations will receive a free T-shirt.

“We have designed this as a family event that will place a focus on heart healthy events and information,” said Mount St. Mary’s President and CEO Judith A. Maness. She noted that in addition to the walk there will be a full morning of activities.

There will be morning refreshments courtesy of Tim Hortons. In addition there will be an inflatable bounce house for children.
