3rd Annual Second Chance Fundraising 5K Run/Walk Presented by UPMC Transplant Services

Please join us for the 3rd Annual Second Chance 5K Run/Walk!

This race is dedicated to the second chance at life that organ transplant recipients are given when they receive their transplant. Funds raised during the race and after party will go to the Center for Organ Recovery and Education. CORE is the federally designated not-for-profit organ procurement organization in Western Pennsylvania that acts as the link between donors, healthcare professionals and recipients in delivering the gift of life through organ, tissue and cornea transplantation.

Registration for the race starts at 9am and the race will begin at 10am. Prizes for winners in several categories will be given and all runners will receive a gift bag upon completion of the race.

After finishing the race, please join us for an after party at the Berwind Wayside Festival grounds right beside the finish line, where we will have great food, beer, door prizes, 50/50s, and raffle chances!
