For the past three years, I have been volunteering at Gift of Life Michigan's MOTTEP event. The Gift of Life MOTTEP LIFE Walk/Run is the largest event promoting organ and tissue donation in the state of Michigan and typically attended by more than 2,000 individuals.
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, like donor families and recipients meeting for the first time.
LIFE Walk/Run is an event for the whole family which also promotes health and fitness through the Kid’s Fun Run, as well as the 5K/10K run and walk.
Last year, I volunteered as a course marshal and I had a great time. However, due to the pandemic, the LifeWalk is a week-long virtual event from July 25th to August 1st this year. I have registered for this event under Team Gift8lives and you can too as well!
