6th Annual 5k Run & 1 Mile Walk

Thank you for making our 2023 5K a success!


Thank you to everyone who supported our 5K Run 1 Mile Walk! The morning was full of friendly competition, community, and celebration. Our 375 registrants is a new record for the event! Whether you participated in-person or virtually, your support was felt by everyone at the House. We loved seeing everyone gather on the lawn, catch up with old friends, and make some new ones. Whether you are a long-time supporter of the House or new to us and our mission, thank you for helping us provide affordable, temporary housing and a welcoming community for organ transplant families.

For those who joined in virtually: thank you!

If you would like to share your times, routes, and photos, please tag us on social media.

And thank you to all of our incredible team participants!

This year was our largest ever for teams – with 22 teams comprised of a total of 166 in-person and virtual participants. Our top five largest teams were: Cleveland Clinic Lung Transplant with 23 members, Hepatic Fanatics with 20, Honoring Debbie Mulhall with 18, CCF Pharmacy with 15, and 21 Can You Do Something For Me with 13.

Mark your calendars: next year's 5K Run/1Mile Walk will be on Sunday, June 9th 2024!

About Brian Vitale

Brian was a friend, Trustee, philanthropist, and liver recipient who was dedicated to supporting and advocating for Transplant House. He founded this event in 2018 and it has become everything he'd hoped - a joyful, family and dog-friendly outdoor celebration and healthy competition that raises impactful funds for our work. In 2021, we celebrated Brian's life and were honored to host 19 of his family and friends who traveled in from New Jersey and beyond (pictured above). Between both in-person and virtual options, we had 312 participants – our most to date! We know that would have made Brian proud and will continue to honor his dedication to Transplant House through this joyful annual event.

Thank you to our generous 2023 event sponsors!
