Registration is now open and we hope that you can join us this year for an exciting version of Lifebanc’s Gift of Life Walk and Run.
This year will be completely different as the Walk and Run will be a part of the Transplant Games in June, 2016.
The walk will NOT, I repeat NOT, be at Blossom Music Center. Instead it WILL BE in downtown Cleveland at the Cleveland Convention Center. And the walk will be held on June 11th and NOT in August.

Together we honor the lives of organ and tissue donors, celebrate the lives of those who have received a second chance at life, recognize those waiting for a life-saving transplant and remember those who died while waiting.
All proceeds will support initiatives to educate the community about organ, eye and tissue donation, and provide bereavement services for families touched by donation/transplantation.
