Why I Run. Catherine's story.
 
Nine years ago, a vehicle crashed at full speed into Catherine Round (center in photo) an accomplished ballet performer and instructor. She wasn't sure she would ever be able to dance again. But after receiving emergency care and extensive rehabilitation at California Hospital Medical Center, she returned to ballet and now enjoys doing the things she loves again ... including giving back.

This marks the 6th year of the Heart of the City 5K and Catherine has been a participant since the beginning. As a team captain, she recruits other ballerinas and friends to join her on race day and raises funds for the hospital. It's easy to spot Catherine's team on the course ... just look for the group in pink tutus!

 
"It's a wonderful hospital that helps people get back on their feet. We always have so much fun at the race and look forward to it each year!"
- former patient, Catherine Round
