We are excited to announce that the 3rd Annual Celebrate Life 5K Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, October 14th, 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.
