Calling all runners, walkers, and donation supporters! Community Tissue Services of Northwest Ohio and Life Connection of Ohio are proud to present the first annual Hero Hustle 5K Run/Walk on November 1, 2014 in Maumee, Ohio!
The mission of the Hero Hustle 5K Run/Walk is to strengthen support, education and recognition of organ, eye and tissue donation in northwest Ohio.
We are hoping that our community will rally together to make this a GREAT first year for this event! Organ, eye and tissue donor families, recipients, living donors, supporters, friends, family, and anyone else in support of donation are all invited to participate!
The theme for this event has a close tie to organ, eye and tissue donation, and truly represents how we feel about those who are affected by it. While the true “heroes” are the donors themselves, there is still a hero inside of us all: the donor families who gave so
generously, the transplant recipients who endure their own challenges and lives on in remembrance of their donors, and ANYONE who is a registered organ, eye and tissue donor. We ALL have the potential for greatness and to be someone’s hero!
In line with the “hero” theme of this race, we also want to encourage kids of all ages to wear their favorite super hero costumes (while still being able to run/walk and see safely!)
We hope you’ll join us and be one of the Hustling Heroes on November 1st!
