Participants ran 10 kilometers or walked five through the streets around the Irvine Spectrum, having collected pledges and sponsorships to benefit the nonprofit organization. There also was a 1K run for children.

Neither rain nor sleet will keep walkers and runners from their goal of raising money for the American Heart Assn. on Sunday. Or so the association hopes. Officials said that in the 13 years the walk/run has been held in Warner Center it has never been canceled because of rain.

More than 7,500 people laced up their running shoes Sunday for the Heart & Sole Classic in Irvine, some to remember a loved one lost to heart disease and others to honor a survivor, but all to celebrate life. "Every single day is a blessing," said Margaret Lawson, whose husband, George, has undergone two successful open-heart surgeries since they were married 22 years ago. The Mission Viejo couple walked the 5K course hand-in-hand while their two young grandsons darted ahead.

Furniture maker Jim Marchetta had his first heart attack at 31 and underwent angioplasty. In February, Marchetta, now 38, had open heart surgery--a five-way bypass. "I never thought I'd have open heart surgery at 38," said Marchetta, married and the father of four children. "The frightening thing is if I didn't go to my cardiologist, a heart attack could have been fatal. The doctors saved my life." Marchetta will be the guest speaker at the Anaheim division of the American Heart Assn.'

Although the participants were a little young for romance, it was still a Valentine's Day dedicated to the heart at Noble Avenue School. About 1,000 students from the North Hills elementary school participated Friday in the American Heart Assn.'s "Jump Rope for Heart" fund-raiser, an event geared toward physical rather than emotional fitness.

Three leading nonprofit organizations are getting a combined total of $2 million to plug Florida citrus products though other foods are equally healthful, raising questions about charities' growing role as paid endorsers. In a series of new commercials funded by the Florida citrus industry, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Assn. and the March of Dimes tout the benefits of Florida oranges and grapefruit--in the broadest such alliance yet between charities and business.

So you didn't eat your vegetables yesterday and you really overdid it with the double-chocolate cake. Don't torture yourself with guilt. Just try to do better in the next few days. That recommendation comes from the American Heart Assn., which has issued reduced-guilt guidelines aimed at getting people to eat right over several days or a week, instead of obsessing over every day or every meal.

Students at Calvert Street Elementary School jumped rope Tuesday to raise money for the American Heart Assn. Sponsors had pledged a set amount of money for each time the students' feet left the ground. Kimberly Amaya, 11, a fifth-grader at the school, said she was happy to help the cause. The issue hits home, she said, because a family member has heart trouble. "This is sending money to people who need it," she said.
