The program honors up to 25 runners from around the world who benefit from medical technology; to qualify as a Global Hero, runners must currently be using a medical device therapy to treat the following disease categories: heart disease, diabetes, chronic pain, spinal disorders, or neurological, gastroenterology and urological disorders. All runners with eligible devices are welcome to apply with no restriction on manufacturer. In seven years, 159 runners representing 23 different countries have been honored. Honorees receive two paid entries into the 2013 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon or the Medtronic TC 10 Mile and a travel package that includes airfare, lodging and meal expenses for the Global Hero and one guest.
