Community Event, Benefit/Fundraiser, Health & Wellness/Nutrition
10th Anniversary Donate Life Run/Walk
On September 12th, 2020 Donor Network West will host the 10th Annual Donate Life Run/Walk 5K and 10K VIRTUALLY! The Donate Life Run/Walk helps raise awareness of the need for organ and tissue donors in California and Nevada. All proceeds from the event will benefit our efforts to inspire California and Nevada residents to register on the Donate Life California and Donate Life Nevada Organ and Tissue Donor Registry, as well as honoring the donors and their families who have already given the Gift of Life. Going virtual this year was a hard choice, but we much rather do this then postpone or cancel the event. We believe it's still going to be just as fun and meaningful. Hopefully we'll be able to reach others who are a little farther away who want to support such a great cause. So strap on some running shoes power up that treadmill or go for socially distancing jog. Whatever your choice go run/walk to support organ & tissue donation and #RUN4LIFE. Register online at 5k.dnwest.org *Registration fees include: custom t-shirt, finisher's medal, and more!*
