HeartChase: Amazing Race meets Minute-to Win-It!

HeartChase is an adventure game with a fun and frenzied pursuit of hidden rewards, and healthy lives. Best of all, it’s a chance to help your community and the AHA chase away heart disease for good. Teams of 2-5 players navigate a 1.5-mile radius course with their smartphones. Along the way, there will be fun challenges promoting healthy lifestyle choices. The games will test your knowledge and skills related to physical fitness, nutrition and hands-only CPR.
