Save the Date - Saturday, July 28, 2018

Show your support for organ, tissue, and eye donation by participating in the 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. The run/walk begins at twilight on Capitol Square, winds along a bike path next to Lake Monona, and ends at Goodman Park with a private pool party. Children 11 and under can join the fun as well by signing up for the Cap City Kids Club!

This celebration of life has become a Madison tradition, bringing families, friends, and supporters together as champions for donation. Over 2,300 families in Wisconsin are hoping that their loved one will get a life-saving transplant. All proceeds go to support the programs and services of the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin for organ, tissue, and eye donors and families across Wisconsin.

New for 2018
Living donors will “meet up” prior to the event. Sponsored by Living Donors Together of Wisconsin.
