Medtronic is recruiting runners from around the world who benefit from medical technology to participate in the eighth annual Medtronic Global Heroes program.
The program is a dynamic example of how individuals with chronic health conditions are living full, active lives and inspiring others in the process. The program honors up to 25 runners from around the world who benefit from medical technology. In seven years, 159 runners representing 23 different countries have been honored.
Global Heroes will receive two paid entries into the 2013 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon or the Medtronic TC 10 Mile and a travel package that includes airfare, lodging and meal expenses for the Global Hero and one guest. As in previous years, selected runners have the opportunity to name an organization to receive $1,000 on their behalf.
Applications for the eighth annual Medtronic Global Heroes program will be accepted through April 26, 2013.
