Memorial Transplant Services 5K Run/Walk
September 6, 2014
Washington Park, Springfield, IL
Memorial Transplant Services holds the annual 5K Run/Walk to raise funds to benefit our Transplant Patient Assistance Fund. The Transplant Patient Assistance Fund assists patients with:
- Transportation expenses involved with doctor visits
- Lodging needs for patients and their family members during pre-transplant workup, the period immediately following transplant surgery and during periods of treatment for rejection
- Prescription Medication Costs and/or Co-Pays
- Funding for other emergent transplant-related issues
This event is a wonderful opportunity for patients and donor families to come together and share their stories. Speaking with others who have experienced the gift of a transplant is very healing for many donor families.
The 2013 Transplant 5K Run/Walk raised $14,000 for the Transplant Patient Assistance Fund. 450 people participated in the event, including transplant recipients, living donors and families of deceased donors.
Thank you to all who participated! Last year's race results can be found at StokesTiming.com.
