Runners and walkers weave past the rollercoasters of Great America as they raise funds for California Transplant Donor Network, an organization dedicated to organ and tissue donation. After the family-friendly event, participants gather for activities and music. Participants who want to enjoy Great America after the event can purchase tickets for 50% off.
California Transplant Donor Network
The stakes are undoubtedly high. At the current rate of donation, more than 30% of people on the National Organ Transplant Waiting List will never get the organs they need. California Transplant Donor Network aims to change that by educating people and raising awareness. They also put boots on the ground, facilitating organ and tissue donation by offering assistance to 175 hospitals in California and Nevada. In addition to their donation work, the network holds events such as 5Ks to raise funds and invites families of donors to contribute memories to the Donor Memorial Quilt Project.
