MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The 1st Annual “Run for Life” is coming to the Ellwood Mattson Lower Harbor Park in early June.
This new event features a 10K and 5K run as well as a walk and is designed to promote organ donation. The events will get underway at 9am on Saturday, June 2nd.
Event organizer Amy Harju joined the SUNNY Morning Show to promote the event and encourage listeners to take part in this new outdoor activity. Harju, who is a recipient herself of an organ transplant, explained how to take part and register and celebrate life that is given when we donate organs.
All proceeds raised at the event will go to the non-profit organization “Second Chance at Life” that helps Michigan transplant patients and familes with medical expenses.
