ON YOUR MARK…
The 2nd Annual Foothills ½ Marathon and 5K Donor Dash is right around the corner on October 22, 2017 in Alcoa, TN. Enjoy the Maryville-Alcoa Greenway while raising awareness for organ and tissue donation. Proceeds benefit the Tennessee Donor Services 2018 Transplant Games Team.
Our 2018 Transplant Games team will be traveling to Salt Lake UT in August 2018 to attend the Donate Life America Transplant Games. The team’s goal is to promote the success of transplantation and to raise awareness for the urgent need of organ and tissue donation and to honor donors and their families who have so generously given the Gift of Life. Team Tennessee is comprised of donor families, organ and tissue transplant recipients, their families, and transplant professionals from Eastern and Central Tennessee. The men, women and children of Team Tennessee embody incredible spirit, courage, energy, inspiration, humor, sportsmanship and friendship. The Transplant Games of America is a four-day athletic competition for organ and tissue recipients and living donors ages two to 85. More than 35 U.S. teams compete in events such as basketball, bowling, cycling, golf, racquetball, a 5-K Race, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track and field and volleyball.
Foothills ½ Marathon – returns to the Maryville-Alcoa Greenway. It’s East TN, so it’s not totally flat, but 90% of the race is in the green way. All ½ marathon participants will receive a commemorative long sleeve performance shirt, and finisher’s medal upon completion. Awards will be given to top three male and female finishers, top masters, top grand masters and 3 deep age groups.
Super Hero 5K Donor Dash – honors those who have given the gift of life, celebrates the lives of organ and tissue recipients, and recognizes those who are waiting for a lifesaving transplant. Participants will receive a race logo cotton shirt and prizes will be awarded for masters, grand masters, and 3 deep age groups.
