On May 7, 2011, join Alex Yin and Sandra Giger as we join others in a 5K to raise awareness about organ donation. The run/walk is sponsored by the Washington Regional Transplant Consortium. It is the 2nd Annual 5K Walk/Run for Life at Rock Creek Park, Washington, DC.
News Update: Over 500 people came to run or walk. The weather was beautifully sunny and warm. Many people ran as a group, in honor of a beloved organ donor or recipient. 62 people registered under "Team Robert"! SIXTY-TWO and "Team Robert" won the prize for the biggest team! Three heart recipients participated. How thankful we are for your support!
