Founded by Craig and Kathleen Hostert, the Donate Life Run/Walk is celebrating its 22nd Anniversary!  After Craig became the recipient of a life saving kidney transplant, they made it their mission to spread the word about organ donation. In 2003, they founded the Southern California Donate Life Run/Walk and Family Festival which has grown to the largest gathering in the country to promote organ, eye and tissue donation. 

From its humble beginnings on the campus of California State University, Fullerton, the Run/Walk has moved to Azusa, CA, the new home of OneLegacy's corporate headquarters. Azusa Pacific University will host the same fantastic event that donation and transplantation advocates have been enjoying for years: a Circle of Life Garden where dedicated signs will be on display; Ted's, Hedrick's and Deceased Donor Family team villages; exhibitors; kid zone; food;  and, most importantly, fun! 

The Donate Life Run/Walk supports OneLegacy Foundation’s mission to save and heal lives by inspiring and advancing donation and transplantation of organs and tissues through research, public education, and honoring donors whose legacies live on.

The Donate Life Run/Walk is a wonderful opportunity for companies and residents of the area to join together and take action to help save lives and strengthen families. We encourage you to register online today.
