Honoring Your Hero

Create and wear t-shirts to identify your team, create a poster before the race and walk with it, and/or decorate a wagon or stroller. At the event, participants will have the opportunity to decorate a race bib to wear, write a note on our Wall of Honor, take a team photo in front of a Celebrate Life 5K Run/Walk photo backdrop, and more. Please note: Poster decorating material will not be available at the event.

If you would like a tribute sign of your loved one included in our Garden of Heroes, please email a high resolution photo with the name as you would like it to appear to tzobrist@midamericatransplant.org by June 30th.

Mid-America Transplant is focused on strengthening our communities by not only serving as the link between patients awaiting organ and tissue transplants and those who donate, but also as a community based resource providing education and bereavement support. The Celebrate Life 5K brings together the St. Louis transplant community to honor organ and tissue donors, celebrate new life with recipients, support those waiting for a lifesaving transplant, and inspire others to say “yes” to donation.We are excited to raise awareness about organ, tissue, and eye donation.
