Why We Walk

The Why We Walk tent is one of the most meaningful experiences of the event. It is a place for participants to display messages, pictures, and memories for all to see. Whatever your connection to donation, please stop by this tent and fill out a "Why I Walk" card to share. Messages and photos will not be returned, so please do not use original photographs.

T-Shirt Row

Honor the gift of life at T-Shirt Row! Many participants of the Family Fun Run take part in a tradition of decorating their shirts in memory of their loved one who was a donor or in honor of a transplant recipient or living donor. Feel free to either decorate an extra shirt to display ahead of time or stop at the tent on race day to decorate your shirt.

Merchandise Tent

Want to wear your support of donation on your sleeve, literally? Stop at the merchandise tent for t-shirts, headbands, cups, bracelets, hats, and more! All proceeds come directly back to The LLF. Prefer to shop online before the race? Visit our online store.

Donor Family Tent

Supporting our donor families is at the heart of our event. Visit our Donor Family Tent to speak with members of our Family Services team and pick up donor family resources and giveaways.

Sponsor Booths

Show our generous sponsors some love! Visit the sponsor booths for information and giveaways.

  • No need to print anything out - just bring a photo ID to packet pickup.

  • Due to increased participation in the Donate Life Family Fun Run, Team Captains are NO LONGER ALLOWED to pick up their entire team's packets.

Course Maps

The 5K race starts and finishes in the Camden Yards Sports Complex on Raven's Walk in Baltimore, MD. The course is a mostly-flat loop around M&T Bank Stadium and the surrounding neighborhoods.

The race starts on Ravens' Walk and goes North towards Camden Yards and Lee St. Runners/walkers then proceed from Lee St. to Russell and then Hamburg, then make a loop around the industrial area near the stadium. After a straight away on Ostend St. (including your first hill over 395), the course goes around Solo Gibbs Park and back to Hamburg St. (for your second and last hill!) and finally around M&T Bank Stadium before finishing on Ravens' Walk.

The 1K walk (actually a little under 1K!) also starts and finishes in the Camden Yards Sports Complex on Ravens' Walk. The course follows the start of the 5K race, but then turns left onto Hamburg instead of right, allowing walkers to end up back on Ravens' Walk.


  • Free race day parking is available in Lots B and C at Camden Yards Sports Complex.

  • The approximate address for GPS directions is:

    • 405 W Lee St, Baltimore, MD 21201.

  • Parking attendants will direct you to the nearest available spot.

  • We highly recommend that participants park before 8:30 a.m. as police will be closing off nearby roads for the race. Arrive early to grab a coffee from a food truck and hear from our inspirational speakers!
