Our Mission

The mission of Challenge Failure is to promote the prevention of Heart Failure by raising funds for research, encouraging healthy lifestyles, and increasing awareness through education and support for those diagnosed with Heart Failure and their families.

Our Story

Challenge Failure was conceived by Robin Boriack, whose late husband Marc suffered from heart failure for many years before passing away in 2010 at the age of 52. Rather than surrender to the grief arising from his untimely death, the Boriack Family was struck with a special vision: to honor Marc’s life by helping others find hope and new life by supporting heart failure research. This vision became reality when the first annual Challenge Failure 5K & 10K Walk/Run was held in March 2011. Since its inaugural event, Challenge Failure has grown and touched the lives of many. We hope you will join us as we Challenge Heart Failure!
