What if the weather is bad on the day of the event? HeartBeat 5000 is a rain-or-shine event and there is no back-up date. If severe weather occurs, the start of the walk/run may be postponed for several minutes until the weather passes. If the storm is persistent, the event may be cancelled. These decisions will be made at the event, and will be announced at the start line and at the registration area. Because this is an important fundraiser, it is our policy to not issue refunds in the unlikely event that the event is cancelled.
