While we could not celebrate National Donate Life Month at Zoo Miami this past April, we cannot let the year go by without banding together in support of the transplant community. So, we are taking this event online and going VIRTUAL!
How does it work? You can walk anywhere (on a treadmill, around your neighborhood or any course of your choice). We will send your race t-shirt and medal, plus you can download a personalized bib, so you’ve got your transplant swag before and after your race.
And this virtual event comes with a special challenge: our goal is to walk/run 2,400 miles together! 24-Hours a day, every day, fellow Floridians are added to the transplant waiting list. Let’s race together to raise $24,000 and log 2,400 miles in solidarity of our transplant brothers and sisters.
Once you’re registered you can easily input your mileage and help us reach our goal! We’ve got two weeks, from August 15th to August 30th, to race together, spread the word on the importance of organ donation, and make a difference to transplant/donor patients right here in South Florida.
Registration is $35…or FREE! Participants can fundraise for special prizes, and if you raise $100 in support from friends/family, we automatically refund your registration and you walk/run for FREE!
More prizes? Yes, please! Whether you register or make a donation of $25 or more, you will be entered into a weekly raffle to win prizes like specialty baskets, wine tastings, massages and more. We will start these weekly drawings on Facebook Live every Wednesday at 6pm beginning on Wednesday, July 29th!
While 2020 is the year of social distancing, we can stay connected online through FOTA’s Facebook page and using hashtag, #FOTAruns. Let’s get active and social together, so lace up your sneakers and join the movement!
