Race Description

Please join us at the Donate Life Nebraska 5K Run and Heroes’ Walk to honor the lives of donors and celebrate the lives of the transplant recipients! As we enter the sixth year of this event, we are excited to bring together transplant recipients and their families, living donors, donor families, medical professionals, the business community, serious runners and families with strollers from across Nebraska and beyond in support of Donate Life Nebraska. The program offers education and promotion of donor registry benefiting those in need.

Participants will experience a beautiful 5K Run across the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge with scenic views of the Missouri River! Chip-timing will be available.

The Heroes' Walk will honor both living donors who have elected to give the greatest gift of all – LIFE, and the families that have graciously elected to donate organs, eyes and tissue of loved ones to benefit those in need.

This is a fun, family-friendly event for all involved. Some of your favorite Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion will be in attendance as well as face painters for the kids.

It is an exciting event that allows us to view miracles in action with recipients, donors and donor families running side-by-side. An amazing experience for all involved!

Great family friendly, all inclusive race!

This is alway well organized and attended. The pace is family friendly, walking is common but there are also serious runners who use this as a training opportunity. It's really an amazing event and very cheap to participate in an outing and give to a great cause!
