Join Gift of Life Michigan's team at the 25th annual Heart Walk and 5K Scrub Run!

The Grand Rapids Heart Walk is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and Gift of Life is proud to participate in this event. We will be having a booth to educate the public about the Michigan Organ Donor Registry, and we’re also putting a team together to participate in the walk or 5K Scrub Shuffle. Run or walk to celebrate your heart health —and support the efforts of the American Heart Association to build a healthier community in West Michigan!

The event takes place on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 8am-11:30am at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park.

There is no charge to sign-up for the walk. If you sign-up to walk as part of Gift of Life’s team, you may choose to raise funds for AHA. Any funds you would like to raise will go towards our team’s fundraising goal of $250. If you sign-up for the 5K you will receive a t-shirt and medal, and your $25 race fee will also count towards our fundraising goal.

We welcome you to invite your friends, family, and even pets! It's an opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by heart diseases and stroke.

Registration is easy:
Step 1: Go to http://www2.heart.org/goto/golm
Step 2: Click on “Join Team”
Step 3: During registration either join as a walker (Free) or 5K Runner ($25).

Don’t forget to wear your scrubs or other uniform to show your support for our local heart heroes.  The 5K Scrub Run is a special addition to the Grand Rapids Heart Walk to celebrate those in the community who are saving lives and the lives they’ve saved.  
We hope you join us and other members of Gift of Life Michigan to help support this great cause.  It’s going to be a lot of fun!
