4th Annual 5k Run & 1 Mile Walk

Join Us Sunday, June 13, Starting at 8:30 a.m.

Help Us Reach Our $50,000 Goal


Join us in person or virtually for the 4th Annual Transplant House of Cleveland 5K Run & 1 Mile Walk! Sunday, June 13, starting at 8:30 a.m. right here at Transplant House of Cleveland.

Hermes Cleveland will coordinate event logistics on-site in accordance with City restrictions, which may involve sending runners off in groups.

This year we will run and walk in celebration of the life of the late Brian Vitale, our event founder, past board member, and missed friend and colleague. The 5K was Brian’s favorite part of the Transplant House year, and he gave heart and soul (and a little elbow-twisting) to make the event a success. Let’s make Brian proud by carrying on his tradition with enthusiasm and beat last year’s proceeds of $46,000.

We think you will love the gathering of joy-filled individuals, friends, and families (including dogs) cheering for each other that day.  It’s a fun group—organ recipients, organ donors, families of organ donors, volunteers, staff, and even friends from around the country, thanks to the virtual option. Do your walk or run wherever you are and we will send you a t-shirt!

Register for the 5K/1 Mile here. All proceeds will support the free programs and reduced-cost accommodations that Transplant House provides to organ transplant patients and their families.
