The Gift of Life MOTTEP LIFE Walk/Run is the largest event promoting organ and tissue donation in the state of Michigan. LIFE Walk/Run is attended by more than 2,000 individuals, including members of the medical profession, major corporations, media personalities, politicians, donor family members, and transplant recipients.
LIFE Walk/Run not only promotes organ and tissue donation, but it brings people together. Over the years, several life-changing events have happened at LIFE Walk/Run – donor families and recipients have met for the first time, participants have gotten married and participants have also traveled internationally to attend.
LIFE Walk/Run is an event for the whole family which also promotes health and fitness through the Kid’s Fun Run, free health screenings and the healthy eating at LIFE Walk/Run Cafe. In addition, there are several other activities which guarantee a good time for all participants.
This cause takes on a more personal meaning for our family; as our youngest daughter, Brooklyn Elise Jennings became an organ donor in January 2016 after passing away suddenly from an Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). Though nothing could soften the blow of losing Baby Girl so suddenly; it helps to know that she lives on not only through our memories, but also because of her Gift of Life.
So, in honor of Brooklyn, we are walking again this year and humbly ask for your financial support.
