simonSunday, October 16, marks the fourth year for the Simon Says Run 5K. Runners and families are welcome from all around the Greater Philadelphia area.  It begins and ends at Victory Fields in Plymouth Meeting and is almost entirely on private roads. The race will be chip timed and awards will be given out to the fastest times in a variety of age groups. The Family Walk is a one-mile loop on a wooded trail and is perfect for people of all ages. The marquis event, the Chain of Survival Relay, pits teams from area schools against each other. They must complete a relay that incorporates the steps taken to save a life from sudden cardiac arrest.This year Simon’s Fund welcomes special guest speaker, Annie FitzPartick and Officer Jeff Sullivan. Earlier this year 19-year-old Annie suffered an episode of cardiac arrest in the parking lot of the Penn Valley Wawa. Annie had been misdiagnosed with a seizure disorder but what they learned that day was that she was actually suffering from an undiagnosed condition of Long QT Syndrome.  Officer Sullivan saved Annie’s life using the AED training he had received that morning. Race starts at 9:00 a.m. On-site registration begins at 7:30 a.m. Click here to register.
