5K & 10K RUN
July 30, 2016 - Historic Belle Isle State Park
Extending life through organ and tissue donation... one step at a time.
On Saturday, July 30, 2016 Gift of Life MOTTEP will host the 19th Annual LIFE Walk/Run. The event has been moved back to the Casino Area. The event will still consist of 10K and 5K Runs, as well as a 5K Walk and a Kids Fun Run. You can see the USATF Certified routes here. The day will be filled with family, friends, food, and fun. We invite you to come join with donor families, recipients, and others who share the message that each one can extend life through organ and tissue donation…one step, one run at a time. We will see you there as one person, one family, one team, one organization - with one purpose - to save lives.
LIFE Walk is in its 19th year of promoting public awareness about the critical need for more organ and tissue donors. We encourage all participants to sign the Michigan Organ Donor Registry to officially record their decision to be an organ and tissue donor.

Every vehicle entering the island MUST HAVE a state park recreational passport (no exceptions)
There will be a booth at the entrance of the island where you can purchase your pass, but we encourage you to get your pass prior to the event day to avoid waiting in a line.
