On November 3, Main Street in Maumee was flooded with donor families, transplant recipients, living donors and supporters, as everyone gathered to celebrate the gift of life at the Hero Hustle 5K!
The fifth annual Hero Hustle 5K Run/Walk, hosted by Life Connection of Ohio and Community Tissue Services, saw record numbers with over 1,200 registered participants! Thankfully, Mother Nature was kind again this year, and everyone enjoyed gathering in the sunshine to celebrate the gift of life!
Congratulations to our top five teams: Team Elena Yakumithis; Team Hilton; Lucas County Coroner’s Office & Toledo Physicians; Allison’s Angels; and Harvey’s Hustlers.
