Cullen Run boosts heart research
Landaas & Company employees joined more than 800 participants in the Steve Cullen Healthy Heart Club Run & Walk Feb. 12.
Including contributions this year, the annual benefit for cardiac research at the Medical College of Wisconsin has raised more than $160,000 for research and awareness.
Landaas & Company is a founding sponsor of the 8-kilometer run and 2-mile run-and-walk, based at the Wil-O-Way Underwood Recreation Center, in Wauwatosa.
The benefit began 15 years ago in memory of former Milwaukee Ald. Steve Cullen, an avid runner who died of a sudden heart attack at age 40. His father and two brothers also died of heart disease at young ages.
