The Donate Life Family Fun Run has been celebrating the lives of organ, eye and tissue donors and transplant recipients for sixteen years. A 5k and 1K run/walk, our goal is to raise awareness for organ, eye and tissue donation and celebrate the generosity of donors and their families. Proceeds from the Donate Life Family Fun Run benefit Infinite Legacy's community outreach and education efforts, as well as our aftercare program and workshops for donor families.

Each year, donor families and friends, transplant recipients, waitlist candidates, living donors, hospital partners and supporters of our mission come together as a community and participate in the Donate Life Family Fun Run. In addition to raising funds, the Fun Run is a great way to celebrate life, second chances and the generosity of organ, eye and tissue donors.


Join us to run, walk or simply celebrate the incredible community that supports life and hope through donation.



Why We Walk and Run

Each year, participants at the Donate Life Family Fun Run are invited to share why THEY walk and run in support of organ, eye and tissue donation.

The Why We Walk/Run installation at the event is a wonderful display of love, generosity, support and hope for all those impacted by donation and transplantation.

Want to share your reason? Visit the Why We Walk/Run booth at the event and fill out one of our chalkboard signs to add to the public display. Feel free to bring a printed photo to further personalize your message!

Want to share your story online? Visit and submit.

Want to honor or support your loved one during the event? Purchase a dedication sign to be displayed at the finish line. Order via The Infinite Legacy Store.
