Event Info

The 5K Celebration of Life is a special time of healing for those whose lives have been touched by donation and transplantation. Join our caring community of organ and tissue donor families, transplant recipients, volunteers, community groups and corporate and hospital partners that come together to honor, to remember, and to give hope!

Visit with NJ Sharing Network staff and sponsors, grab a snack, spend time with family and friends in our Team "Tent City", and be inspired during the live program at the Main Stage before making your way to the start line... We can't wait to celebrate with you.
