A key moment of our event will be the first-time introduction of a transplant recipient to their lifesaving donor. All contact between the donor and recipient during the first year following the transplant must be anonymous, so it is always an emotionally impactful moment when the two are able to meet in person for the very first time.
There will be music, refreshments, and much more. Following the race, there will be an awards ceremony recognizing the top runners.
Location: FAU Football Stadium on the FAU campus
This is a Rain or Shine event
