The University of Louisville Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, along with Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA), will host the annual Legacy of Life 5K Walk on Saturday, September 21 at Iroquois Park.
The 5K run/walk offers donor families, recipients, healthcare providers and donation supporters to unite in a collaborative effort to raise awareness for organ, tissue and eye donation. The walk will benefit the organ donation memorial at University of Louisville Hospital, which serves as a place where families who’ve lost loved ones can reflect on the life lost, but also on the lives saved by organ and tissue donation.
Registration for the event is $25 in advance, or $30 day of walk. Online registration can be completed by visiting www.runsignup.com/Race and searching “Legacy of Life”.
