Until Riebe Run Begins

Join us for the Riebe Run on Saturday, September 21st at French Regional Park in Plymouth, MN starting at 9AM.

This family-friendly 5k walk/run raises awareness for heart disease in honor of Greg Riebe, who passed away in 2015 from arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy. With each step, participants will fuel cutting-edge heart disease research–bringing us closer to changing the trajectory of heart disease for current and future generations. Your participation and donation supports heart rhythm research at the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation.

“Live in the moment and never give up” – Greg’s motto was also his way of life. He inspired others by exuding a positive outlook and forever smile.

About Greg & The Riebe Run:

Greg was an amazing father, friend, and active participant in the Twin Cities running scene. Sadly, his life was cut short due to a sudden and unexpected heart condition. He had a rare, genetic form of heart disease called arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM) that he did not know he had; he had no signs or symptoms.

After Kate’s husband Greg passed away, she became a passionate advocate for heart health. She, along with some of Greg’s friends, started the Riebe Run in 2016 to honor Greg and raise awareness for heart disease and support the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation. Kate and Greg’s two children look forward to celebrating their Dad each year with the Riebe Run.

We are honored to celebrate the culmination of years of research that has resulted in new technologies for patients! In the few last weeks, we announced a similar research milestone with the FDA approval of the TriClip system for tricuspid regurgitation. We celebrated this important milestone with local media KSTP-TV, who spotlighted the importance of this new technology. We were proud to be a leading clinical site led by Global PI Dr. Paul Sorajja and the MHIF research team who contributed significant data to the pivotal trial.
