Runners and walkers kicked off Donate Life Month at Eastwood MetroPark in Dayton on April 7 for the Strides 4 Life 5K. The awareness event was hosted by Life Connection of Ohio, Community Tissue Services and Lions Eye Bank of West Central Ohio.
Even with a dusting of snow on the ground and a slight delay due to ice, more than 250 registered participants braved the elements! Donor family members, recipients, waiting list candidates and supporters celebrated the lives saved and enhanced through organ, eye and tissue donation and honored those who gave those gifts. Hats “on” to these participants for running and walking in temperatures that did not rise above 30 degrees!
Thank you to our 2018 Strides 4 Life sponsors — Cox Media Group, CoriGraphics, Kettering Health Network, Premier Health and Shumsky.
Stay tuned for details for our fourth annual Strides 4 Life 5K!
