As the daughter of a heart transplant recipient, I feel it’s my duty as a human being to spread the word regarding the cause. As luck would have it, the Washington Regional Transplant Community has announced that registration is now open for the second annual “Race to Donate Life,” where all proceeds directly benefit the Washington Regional Transplant Community’s awareness programs for organ, eye and tissue donation.
This family-friendly event is a timed 5K run/walk festival with festivities taking place at Rock Creek Park (Picnic Grove 24) on Saturday, May 7, over Mother’s Day weekend.
Runners/Walkers can register online. Registration closes at 6 p.m. on May 6 and there is no option for race day registration. The entry fee is $20 until April 11 and $25 thereafter.
