  • GR8 to DON8 5K/8K

    Community Event
    April 1 | 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM
    Lyman High School

    GR8 to DON8 is the premier organ and tissue donation awareness event in east-Central Florida. This unique 8k run and 5k walk/run allows the running community and the donation/transplantation community to come together in support of one great cause. We gather to celebrate those who have received the Gift of Life and to honor those who have given the Gift of Life through organ, eye and tissue donation—as well as to educate our community about the importance one “yes” makes.

    Your support of GR8 to DON8 5k/8k Run for Organ Donation helps save lives by supporting vital education and care programs through the Susan Perkins Fund at OurLegacy. Every year, thousands of lives are saved due to the generosity of organ donors. Susan Perkins was one of them.

    Support from our community, and people like you, makes all the difference.
