The "Smile More Like Bill" team is walking and running in honor of the most amazing man, Bill Shreeve. In February of 2020, Bill suffered multiple strokes and unfortunately passed away on February 12th, 2020. However, Bill was a registered organ and tissue donor and three of his organs were able to be donated to save the lives of others. Bill had the biggest smile and was known for his goofy, fun-loving personality. Upon walking into a room, Bill would become your best friend in a matter of minutes. His love for life, his family, and his friends continue on and his team is ready to walk and run with the biggest smiles on their faces in honor of that amazing man!
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 healthy eating at LIFE Walk/Run Cafe. In addition, there are several other activities which guarantee a good time for all participants.
