2022 Run Update

You can run or walk the virtual race from any location you choose: Your very own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself any time on April 3rd 2022! 

Patients who come to Strong for heart, liver, pancreas and kidney transplants often need financial assistance while they await and recover from surgery. In addition to costly medical treatment, the need to travel—some at great distance—can add strain on them and their families.

Co-sponsored by Friends of Strong and the hospital’s transplant programs, the River Run benefits transplant patients who are awaiting or recovering from organ transplant surgery. All proceeds go toward helping our patients pay for expenses associated with lifelong care, such as life-saving medications and travel expenses.

Download and print your racing bib to wear when and where you choose to complete your 5K and take some fun selfies to share with friends and family and show your supporting a great cause. Online registration continues through April 3rd.

Why We Run (or Walk)

The River Run/Walk 5K is an annual event sponsored by Friends of Strong Memorial Hospital and the hospital’s transplant units. All proceeds directly benefit transplant patients and the Friends of Strong patient care fund.

Transplant recipients who come to Strong for heart, liver, pancreas or kidney transplant often need financial assistance while they await and recover from transplant surgery. In addition to costly medical treatment, the need to travel – for some a great distance – adds financial strain on patients and their families. Your support and participation in the River Run will help hundreds of patients currently awaiting transplants, as well as those who continue to receive follow-up care from Strong.
