After checking in (which begins at 6:45 a.m.), participants walk or run through California's Great America theme park before it opens, from 8 a.m. till 9:30 a.m., then eat a light breakfast, listen to music, and view the donor memorial quilts on display. They also receive a T-shirt and expo bag. The 5K raises money for California Transplant Donor Network's lifesaving organ- and tissue-donation efforts.
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.
