If you have participated in one of our previous four Bolt for the Heart Family Thanksgiving runs, We THANK YOU! Our mission is simple, we are a not for profit 501c3 organization that uses 100% of the proceeds from our annual run and purchases Automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) that we donate to not for profit organizations in need. To date, we have donated over 150 AEDs and helped facilitate the placement of another 120 in police and sheriff vehicles in central Indiana.
In March, through the proceeds from our 2015 run AND the generous support from our many sponsors we donated 55 AEDs to the Indiana State a Police Trooper patrol cars mainly in rural areas in Indiana. This was a significant day for all of us involved with the Bolt whether you’re a board member, sponsor or a past participant.
Look for the red stickers in the State police patrol cars indicating an AED on board. We are also so thankful you for the generous organizations in Indiana doing similar work; HeartSavers in Evansville and the Dylan Williams a Foundation in Union City. These organizations have combined to donate over 100 AEDs in the last 2 years. AEDs saves lives which is why we are so thankful for you and your families participation.
New at this year’s Race:
- An Indiana First- All finishers will receive an LED blinking medal
- For the first 500 registered- Bolt for the Heart stocking cap & gloves
- New options to upgrade to a Higher quality tech shirt and 1/4 zip

So on behalf of the Board of Directors at the Bolt, we invite to join us November 24 at 9 AM at the Center Green in Carmel. Please join us to create your new family tradition, if you cannot make it that day, we are offering a virtual race option this year so that your support can still be directed to the Indiana State Police AED donation for 2016, while you run wherever a Thanksgiving takes you this year.Event Details Event Details
