We’re Going Virtual! The Mission Will Go On.

In light of the rapidly evolving Covid-19 pandemic, we wanted to provide an update on our May 16th Fort Worth 2nd Chance Run. We’re Going Virtual.

LifeGift’s primary concern is the health and safety of our walk/run participants, volunteers and staff. We’ve been closely monitoring the guidance from health and governmental officials. As many of our participants and volunteers are transplant recipients or currently on the transplant waiting list, we’re especially mindful of important safety precautions.

Yes, we’re disappointed we won’t be hosting our 18th Annual Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards; but, we’re thrilled we can still support the mission of saving lives through organ and tissue donation.

How Will a Virtual Run Work?

On Saturday, May 16th you can run or walk 1 mile or 3.1 miles (5k) individually, wherever you are. Different streets. Same day. Same mission. If you choose to do so, please follow your city or county’s recommendations on participation in outdoor activities and practice social distancing, staying at least six feet away from other people.

Registered participants will receive a Donate Life Run 2020 t-shirt. In the meantime, we want to meet up with you on social media! If you are able to do a physical activity in support of our mission, send us a picture or post a comment of support to our donor families, transplant recipients and other members of our Donate Life community. You can transfer your registration into a donation to LifeGift, and we still want to see your posts on social media! Take a selfie and let us know what the mission of saving lives through organ and tissue donation means to you. #2ndChanceRun, #DonateLife and #GoingVirtualMissionGoesOn!

By joining us in this virtual run through participation or donation, you are supporting our community of more than 10,000 Texans who are waiting for a critical organ transplant.

If you have questions, please contact Dagmar Climo, LifeGift Director of Communications at dclimo@lifegift.org.

Live Life. Give Life. Offer Hope.

 

Here Are Your Options:

How will a virtual run work? On the morning of Saturday, May 16, instead of gathering to run the streets of the Fort Worth Stock Yards, we encourage you to run or walk individually, wherever you are. Different streets. Same day. Same mission. If you choose to do so, please follow your city or county’s recommendations on participation in outdoor activities and practice social distancing, staying at least six feet away from other people.

We still want to see your posts on social media! Take a selfie and let us know what the mission of saving lives through organ and tissue donation means to you. #2ndChanceRun, #DonateLife and #GoingVirtualMissionGoesOn!

If running virtually is not of interest to you, you can transfer your registration into a donation to support our mission of saving lives through organ and tissue donation. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at future 2nd Chance Runs.

Who Will You Run For?

Donate Life Texas and LifeGift invites you to spend a morning celebrating the gift of life. You can run or walk 1 mile or 3.1 miles (5k) individually, wherever you are.

 

The Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run hosted by LifeGift honors organ, eye and tissue donors in 109 Texas counties in North, Southeast and West Texas. While celebrating the lives saved and offering hope to those still waiting, the event raises awareness of the need for organ, eye and tissue donation across the state.

 

All registrants will receive a custom event shirt specifically for 2nd Chance Run Fort Worth!
