We are excited for our NEW DATE AND LOCATION! The 2nd Annual Celebrate Life 5K Run/Walk will be held in Forest Park at the Upper Muny Lot. With more than 1,600 participants registered for the initial date, we were required to move to a location that can accommodate our growing numbers. 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.
