Starting in 2015, proceeds from the run/walk began funding an annual $25,000 Cullen Healthy Heart Scholar Award as well as other cardiac research projects. This award honors a Medical College scientist involved in cutting-edge cardiovascular research, once again placing the money raised directly in the laboratory, where we can make the most difference!
