CHICO, Calif - It was all love Saturday morning at Enloe Medical Center's fourth annual "Heart and Sole" 5K run.
More than 650 people came out to One Mile Recreation Area to get their hearts racing for a good cause.
Runners of all ages some as old as 90, hit the trails for the race.
Dozens of folks were "healthy heart patients,” people from Enloe's Cardiovascular Care Program.
One woman told us she had recent heart bypass surgery, and this was her first major event since going under the knife.
"These are people who have had heart attacks, heart surgeries and for them, it's a really big deal and to be able to give them a fun and engaging event like this that they can really own and enjoy is really special for us,” said Deanna Squires, an outreach coordinator for Enloe Medical Center.
All of the proceeds fund Enloe's future Cardiovascular Care Center.
