Island MetroPark was full of runners and walkers who gathered to stomp out the waiting list one stride at a time on April 2 at the first annual Strides 4 Life 5K.
The mission of the Strides 4 Life 5K, which is organized by Life Connection of Ohio, Community Tissue Services and Lions Eye Bank of West Central Ohio, is to strengthen support, education and recognition of organ, eye and tissue donation in west central Ohio. Almost 300 people attended this special event, which featured a 1-mile Family Fun Run and 5K Run/Walk.
