5K Run/Walk- Launch the Donate Life Transplant Games by running or walking with thousands of participants in a downtown setting.

Coffee House- An open mic/taping forum for donor families, living donors, recipients and professionals to share a few words. Participants can relax over dessert and coffee and share personal thoughts, stories, poems, songs or other creative expressions about how donation has affected their lives. 

Donor Tribute Ceremony- A special tribute to our loved ones who have donated organs, tissue and corneas at the time of death and to living donors who have given organs so others could have a second chance at life. All donor families and Games participants are encouraged to attend.

Transplant Workshops and Seminars- These sessions offer encouragement, education and support to those who have been affected by organ transplantation and/or donation.
