GREENFIELD — With the temperature’s recent plunge and record snowfall, an outdoor heart health competition and a 5K run to benefit the Pennsy Trail are probably not the first things that jump to the front of people’s minds, but organizers for the events are getting ready despite January’s bite.

The American Heart Association and a coalition of Greenfield business and health groups are planning two separate events in May designed to get county residents acting on and thinking about healthy lifestyles.

On May 10, Greenfield has been tabbed by the Heart Association to join its annual HeartChase, a community-based competition that pits two- to five-member teams against each other in an event that is a cross between “The Amazing Race” and “Minute to Win It,” said Carmen Parker, HeartChase director.

“It’s an excellent event to bring folks together to have some fun, but also to learn about the American Heart Association and something to take back and make a lifestyle change,” Parker said.
