The Legacy of Life 5k run/walk is an event that represents an incredible celebration of life and of hope!

In Kentucky, more than 1000 individuals are currently on a waiting list to receive a life-saving organ. Many more have an opportunity to have an improved quality of life as a result of tissue or eye donation.

UofL Hospital has a long time commitment to their patients and families who are experiencing end-of-life decisions. Creating an environment that fosters quality end-of-life support is important to the culture within the hospital. The health care professionals work collaboratively with Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) to give families the opportunity of eye, organ and tissue donation.

This event raises community awareness for eye, organ and tissue donation, and involves donor families, recipients, health care professionals, and the general public in support of our cause.

Proceeds for the Legacy of Life 5k run/walk will assist in the patient assistance fund and our donor after-care program.

UofL Hospital is excited to announce our continued partnership with KODA and Trust for Life in bringing you the 10th Annual Legacy of Life Run/Walk event.

Plan now to join us on Saturday, September 14

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we have some exciting things planned for this year’s event. The first being a NEW LOCATION.

The 2019 Legacy of Life 5K will begin and end at Our Lady of Lourdes (508 Breckenridge Lane).

Participants will enjoy a route through the St. Matthews neighborhood. We believe this flatter route will be much more user-friendly and accommodating to our walkers and runners.

We cannot thank everyone enough for their support, commitment and dedication to bringing awareness to organ donation over the years. We look forward to seeing all of you in September.
