Memorial Transplant Services holds a 5K Run/Walk in September to raise funds to benefit our transplant funds. 

The 2016 event raised $8,000 for the funds which:

  • Assist patients with transportation expenses related to doctor visits
  • Help provide lodging for patients and their family members during pre-transplant workup, the period immediately following transplant surgery and during periods of treatment for rejection
  • Pay for prescription medication costs and/or co-pays
  • Support program development as well as education for patients and staff

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.


Many thanks to our event sponsors. This event would not be possible without their generous donations.
