Run for the Roses
The Kentucky Derby is the longest running sports event in American history. Now, a cherished pastime, Run for the Roses has evolved into the icon of American horse racing. Each year, the Derby champion is presented with a garland consisting of 400 red roses signifying the struggle and heart necessary to reach the Derby Winner's Circle.
Join us in the Winner’s Circle as we work to eradicate our nation's #1 and #5 killers - heart disease and stroke. Each $1,000 individual gift made prior to April 15th will be recognized with one single red rose on the garland.
