Think Spring! Think Green! Think Renewed Life!
Think 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!
Help us promote organ, eye and tissue donation during the event by wearing your favorite shades of green. Green shorts, green shoes, green hats, green body paint, green accessories you name it — if it’s green, wear it! Fun prizes will be awarded to the greenest participants.
What is The GREEN 5K?
Everyone is invited to participate in the GREEN 5K, which is designed to spread donation awareness by commemorating the lives of donors, celebrating the lives of recipients and recognizing the lives of those waiting for a lifesaving transplant.
Why GREEN? Green is commonly associated with organ donation awareness!
Who can participate?
This year, we’re looking for business teams, church teams, school teams, sport teams, friend teams, neighbor teams — any group that wants to raise money to promote the importance of organ, eye and donation throughout Iowa.
All those who have been impacted by organ, eye and tissue donation are encouraged to participate. No matter your skill level — whether you run, walk, stroll, wheel, volunteer, cheer or make a charitable donation — the GREEN 5K is a great way to support this life-changing cause.
Registration is open!

Did you know?
Did you know when My Angel Foundation was founded in 2007 there was only around 90K Iowans on the Iowa Donor Registry. Drum Roll….in 2015 Iowa Donor Network is expecting the 2 Millionth Iowan to register on the Iowa Donor Registry! This run and walk had a huge impact in making that possible. The GREEN 5K is My Angel Foundation’s largest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds go toward launching statewide programs like The Power of Yes (www.thepowerofyes.org) to educate Iowans about Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation and how to become a registered donor on the www.IowaDonorRegistry.org.
