All proceeds to benefit TransLife. TransLife is dedicated to saving and improving lives through organ and tissue donation and public education, while honoring all donors and their loved ones whose generosity makes the gift of life possible.
One organ donor can save up to eight lives (hence the 8K Run for Organ Donation) while tissue donation can improve the quality of life for dozens more. Last year, nearly 28,000 lives were saved due to the generosity of organ donors. Today, more than 100,000 children and adults await that precious gift. Hundreds of thousands more patiently wait for the gift of tissue donation.
