About This Activity

"A wonderful experience and certainly a perfect venue for creating awareness. I never tire of hearing the many experiences of the participants and why they are there!!" - Buzz F.

Show your support of organ, tissue, and eye donation at the 2016 Capital City 5K to raise awareness for the gift of life. The 5K, USATF certified event is managed by Next Level Sports and takes place on a beautiful summer evening in Madison, WI. The run/walk begins at twilight on the Capitol Square, winds along a Lake Monona path, and ends at Goodman Park with a private pool party. Children 11 and under can join in the fun as well by signing up for the Cap City Kids Club!

This celebration of life has become a Madison tradition, bringing together families, friends, and supporters as champions for donation. Over 2,300 families in Wisconsin are hoping that their loved one will get a life-saving transplant. All proceeds support the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin and their programs and services for transplant recipients, living donors, and donor families across Wisconsin. More details can be found at www.capitalcity5k.org. #CapitalCity5K

 

Registration is non-transferable and non-refundable.
