Think Spring! Think Green! Think Renewed Life!
Think Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation!
My Angel Foundation and Iowa Donor Network are teaming up to host the 10th annual Green 5K Fun Run and Walk on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at Centennial Park in Waukee.
“This event helps spread awareness about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation by commemorating the lives of donors, celebrating the health of recipients, and providing hope for those who continue to wait for a life-changing transplant,” said Ted Cochran, founder of My Angel Foundation and a kidney recipient. “The goal of the event is to raise awareness about donation but also build support from the community at a fun event for the whole family.”
“We are thrilled to partner with My Angel Foundation for the Green 5K, especially as this is the 10th anniversary for the event. The Green 5K not only has increased registration rates across the state but also raised thousands of dollars for important projects to spread awareness and honor donors and their families that have given the ultimate gift of life,” said Kaylie Hoyle, Events Specialist at Iowa Donor Network. “We encourage you, your family and friends to sport your best green gear and help us promote organ, eye and tissue donation.”The GREEN 5K Fun Run and Walk is coming up Saturday, May 7, 2016, at Centennial Park in Waukee, and we want you to show us how you get your green on!
Registration for the Green 5K opens February 1, 2017 at thegreen5k.com.
