Carolina Pines Regional Medical Center hosted its Third Annual Jumpstart Your Heart 5K to purchase Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for local schools and non-profit organizations. With funds raised their previous 5K, they were able to purchase 7 AEDs and they hope to raise enough money to buy and donate 12 AEDs this year. Under cloudy skies, approximately 100 runners participated in 8 different age categories. Prizes were awarded for top female and male finishers and top three finishers in the following age categories: under 20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+.
