Donate Life - Nebraska - 5th Annual Donate Life Nebraska 5K & Heroes' Walk

Sprint it Run it Walk it....20165KPostcard

Please join us for the 5th Annual Donate Life Nebraska 5K Run and One-Mile Heroes' Walk that will be held at the beautiful Aksarben Village, Stinson Park in Omaha on Saturday, April 16, 2016. Participants will experience a beautiful 5K run with scenic views on a paved route that is perfect for strollers and runners alike! Chip-timing will be available for all runners who are interested in tracking their time.

The 5th Annual Donate Life Nebraska 5K & Heroes' Walk is unique in that it brings together transplant recipients and their families, living donors, donor families, medical professionals, the business community, serious runners and families with strollers from across Nebraska and beyond in support of Donate Life Nebraska. The program offers education and promotion of donor registry benefiting those in need.

The Heroes' Walk will honor both living donors who have elected to give the greatest gift of all – LIFE, and the families that have graciously elected to donate organs, eyes and tissue of loved ones to benefit those in need.

This is a fun, family friendly event with music, face painting and other activities for all involved.
