Safety Protocols
Out of an abundance of caution, we will be adhering to the following safety guidelines:

  • All attendees, volunteers, and staff will be required to show proof of vaccination or negative PCR test within 48 hours of the event. 
    • Proof of vaccination or negative test are to be presented at the registration area upon arrival.
  • All attendees, volunteers, and staff must wear masks throughout the event, with the exception of participants who are actively running/ walking on the 5k course.
  • Racers will begin in separate heats to avoid a large group gathering at the start line.
  • All food and beverage items will be handed out by masked and gloved volunteers.
  • Masks and hand sanitizer will be readily available at multiple locations on site.

Event Festivities: A key moment of our event will be the first-time introduction of a transplant recipient to their lifesaving donor. All contact between the donor and recipient during the first year following the transplant must be anonymous, so it is always an emotionally impactful moment when the two are able to meet in person for the very first time. 

There will be music, refreshments, and much more. Following the race, there will be an awards ceremony recognizing the top runners.

Live Streaming: The event will be live-streamed at https://www.facebook.com/giftoflife
