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.
