    The 5K walk and 5K run will start at the same time. After about a mile, the 5K walk will head toward the high school track in Manson and walkers will complete one lap and then head back to the finish. The 5K run will head to the golf course in Manson and runners will run about one mile on the grassy course and then head back to the finish. A map will be provided at registration.

    Money raised will benefit organizations for organ donation. Emily was a lung transplant recipient and her goal is to always spread awareness about the power of organ, eye, and tissue donation. Please help us support Emily and make her wish of supporting organ donation come true!

Our Vision:

All are inspired to donate life.
