Salazar to Participate in 10 Mile Race

Alberto Salazar — a former Olympian and marathon world record holder — will run in the Medtronic TC 10 Mile race this fall, the Fridley-based medical device company said today.

Following a sudden cardiac arrest last year, Salazar received a Medtronic implantable cardiac defibrillator — a device that can help patients by shocking failing hearts back into healthy rhythms. Salazar will serve as honorary captain for a group of 25 runners with medical devices.
