Running long distances was never meant to be easy. It becomes even harder when the body becomes a barrier. For runners diagnosed with medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, spinal disorders, chronic pain or neurological disorders, that is the reality. Yet the passion for running remains.
A cooperative effort between Twin Cities in Motion and Medtronic, Global Heroes® is a first-of-its-kind program that brings runners from around the world who benefit from medical technology to Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota to run in Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon events.
