Join UWP for our 11th Annual 5K Walk & Run on Saturday, April 18th, 2020 in Powder Mills Park! There are lots of ways to participate – you can volunteer at the race, register to walk or run, or be a sponsored runner and fundraise with a team! Online registration begins February 1st at www.ugandanwaterproject.com/5k
Each year the 5K raises $25,000-$35,000 to help fund the mission of UWP throughout the year. The event brings out 400-500 runners, walkers, volunteers and friends to cheer them on! The 5K is an energetic, family-friendly event with live music, refreshments, prizes and a 1K Kids Fun Run.
On Sunday April 26, 2020, the Strong Memorial Hospital Transplant Programs and the Friends of Strong will host the 19th Annual Rochester River 5k Run and Walk. We are hosting this event during Organ Donor Awareness Month, which will give us an opportunity to promote organ donation in our community. The money raised from the Rochester River Run/Walk 5K directly benefits heart, liver, kidney, and pancreas patients when these needs arise. Patients often experience financial hardships while awaiting and receiving a transplant, or following through with expensive anti-rejection and life sustaining medication regimens post-transplant.
