Health Expo – FREEH. Tyrone Mitchell Association’s (HTMA) 1st Annual 5K Run/Walk and Health Expo. This event seeks to promote health and fitness within the Durham community. The HTMA was created in the memory of Herman Tyrone Mitchell who was a dedicated husband, father, son, brother, and friend. Tyrone touched so many with his sense of humor, his honest opinion, and his passion for helping others. Regretfully, at the age of 42 he suffered a fatal sudden cardiac arrest. The mission of HTMA, a nonprofit organization, is to raise community awareness about sudden cardiac arrest, cardio vascular diseases, and treatment, while encouraging people to live a healthier lifestyle.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 towards purchasing Automated External Defibrillators that will be strategically placed in public settings with the purpose of helping the next victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
