July 25, 2015 | Historic Belle Isle State Park

Please note the location change.  The event will take place at the FLYNN PAVILION this year.

On Saturday, July 25, 2015, Gift of Life MOTTEP will host the 18th Annual LIFE Walk/Run.  This year the event will be setup on the campus of the Flynn Pavilion. The event will still consist of 10K and 5K races, as well as, a 5K walk and more information on the setup for the day and routes will be provided soon.  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 18th 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.
