Save the date! Join us in honoring donor families and living donors, celebrating new life with recipients, supporting those waiting for a life-saving transplant, and inspiring others to say ‘yes’ to donation.

The Annual Celebrate Life 5K Run/Walk is back for an in-person event and will be held on Saturday, September 30th, in Forest Park at the Upper Muny Lot. We are excited to raise awareness about organ, tissue, and eye donation. In bringing the St. Louis Transplant Community together we will honor donor families and living donors, celebrate new life with recipients, support those waiting for a life-saving transplant, and inspire others to say yes to donation. 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.

Registration and course map information coming soon.
