LIFE Walk/Run not only promotes organ and tissue donation, but it brings people together. Over the years, several life-changing events have happened at LIFE Walk/Run – donor families and recipients have met for the first time, participants have gotten married and participants have also traveled internationally to attend.

LIFE Walk/Run is an event for the whole family which also promotes health and fitness through the Kid’s Fun Run, free health screenings and the healthy eating at LIFE Walk/Run Cafe. In addition, there are several other activi­ties which guarantee a good time for all participants.

The Detroit MOTTEP Foundation is committed to decreasing the number and rate of people in need of organ and tissue transplants through prevention education and to increase the number of organ and tissue donors in the Greater Detroit multicultural community.
