Introducing the BCH Heart to Heart 5K

Boulder Community Health (BCH) is pleased to announce our partnership with Boulderthon to present the Boulder Community Health Heart to Heart 5K on Sept. 29, 2024 in downtown Boulder to raise funds for our cardiology patients.

The newly revamped race course, recently named one of the Top 10 5Ks in the country by USA Today will feature an all-road, fast and flat experience for all participants, allowing for wheelchair athletes and those utilizing wheeled vehicles, like duo runners, to take part in the event. Registration for the 5K, as well as for Boulderthon’s 10K, half and full marathon is open now on

“BCH is proud to offer our area’s only full-service cardiology program at Boulder Heart with a full range of life-saving treatments, experienced cardiologists and surgeons as well as advanced technologies to keep our community’s hearts healthy,” said Robert Vissers, MD, BCH president and CEO. The Heart to Heart 5K supports our vision of partnering to create and care for the healthiest community in the nation by offering a fun way for people to come together in community and wellness through movement as a means to better health.”

Research has shown that physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health, particularly cardiovascular health. Physical activities, such as running and walking, have been shown to reduce heart attacks, strengthen heart muscles and reduce blood pressure, amongst other benefits.

The Heart to Heart 5K will serve as the culminating event to BCH’s annual Movement Challenge, a month-long event that encourages participants to move each day and log results for daily prizes. A community favorite, the Movement Challenge will kick off Sept. 1 and conclude with the Heart to Heart 5K on Sept. 29. For more information on the 2024 Movement Challenge, visit
