Memorial Transplant Services 5K Run-Walk

Memorial Transplant Services holds the annual 5K Run/Walk in September to raise funds to benefit our Transplant Patient Assistance Fund. The 2015 event raised $11,000 for the 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.
