What: All proceeds to benefit Transplant Community Alliance’s Living Assistance Fund. This fund provides much-needed services to transplant recipients such as medication, temporary housing, and travel through the transplant process and beyond.
Participants: 300 runners, plus vendors, supporters, and volunteers. Participants will receive a bib with a timing chip, race t-shirt, swag bag and a participation medal. Results and prizes will be presented immediately after that last finisher and will be awarded for the top 3 overall finishers. The top 3 in each age group will receive place medals to go with their participation medal. Additional prizes will be awarded for top team fundraisers and top individual fundraisers.
Vendors: The vendor village will set up in the center of the complex by the start and finish line. Last year, tables included many local non-profits, healthcare providers, and transplant partners, including Dignity/St. Joseph’s Medical Center, Donate Life Arizona, Banner Transplant Institute, and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
DonateLife: There will be a donor tribute table providing pinwheels for recipients, families, and friends to recognize a Donor Hero.
“I had the occasion to see how organ donation positively affects families’ lives. I am registered to be a tissue, eye, and organ donor because I want to give the gift of life to someone who needs it. Although it is a very sad time for a donor’s family, they have the opportunity to do so much good,” says Jennifer D’Oliveira, event organizer. D’Oliveira’s close friend lost her daughter to suicide and made the brave decision to donate her organs to six recipients.
She encourages everyone to register as an organ, eye, and tissue donor at DonateLifeAZ.org/TCA
