CARMEL, Ind. (WTHR) - Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and this year, you once again have the chance to get some exercise before the big meal and help raise money to save lives at the same time.

Bolt for the Heart is a 5K race in Carmel that raises money for all Indiana State Police and sheriff's departments to have access to AED's.

Jeanne Johnson stopped by WTHR Weekend Sunrise to share her personal story about why these devices are so important.

The 8th Annual Bolt for the Heart will be Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2019, in Carmel, Indiana.

The race starts and finishes at the Palladium Center Green in Carmel and will begin at 9 a.m.
