Our race will benefit Mulligans Living Kidney Donors.
Mulligans Living Kidney Donors is a Volunteer 501(c)3 Organization located in Louisville, Kentucky that provides mentoring and support through the process of finding a living kidney donor for patients with end stage kidney failure. We speak and attend events throughout the year to raise awareness of the need for living kidney donors. One person dies every 22 minutes in the US waiting on a deceased kidney. We all have two and only need one. We work tirelessly to bring awareness to not only become an organ donor but in the case of a kidney, a healthy person can give another a kidney and live a totally normal, healthy life with no boundaries.
The charity was created for the sole purpose of helping people through the kidney transplant journey. Sharing stories of inspiration and ideas on how to get the word out that you need a living kidney donor! We are a support/mentoring group that works together to raise awareness of the need for LIVING DONORS.
All proceeds raised from this event will go toward grants that help donors to offset costs so that they are not “out-of-pocket” when donating a kidney.
Our race shirts are a performance/tech style in men's and women's cut. Get one while they last!
