The Kickstart My Heart event - with proceeds to be dedicated to purchase an EKG machine for the Cardiopulmonary Department at Glen Rose Medical Center — will get underway at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18.

The event features a 1-mile fun run, plus a 5K and 10K timed event. The race, which starts in the back parking lot at GRMC, has a $25 entry fee and that includes a goody bag and event T-shirt.
