Cullen Run Scholar

Starting in 2015, proceeds from the run/walk began funding an annual $25,000 Steve 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!

In 2020, we are proud to support the work of Dr. Ze Zheng, who is studying the COVID-19 coronavirus and how it affects the heart and blood vessels.
