2022 SCADaddle Wrap!

October 13, 2022

After two years postponing SCADaddles® due to COVID, thanks to the dedication and hard work of many, all SCADaddles in 2022 were held in-person. They also had an option to participate virtually. SCADaddles not only raise tens of thousands of dollars for research, they provide an opportunity for survivors and SCAD Angel families to meet and support each other. Mayo Clinic researches attended several SCADaddles and provided an update on the latest research findings. Click Mayo Clinic Presentation to watch their presentation at our National 5K.
