Donate Life Run/Walk

The Donate Life Run/Walk is a 5K and 10K fundraiser hosted by Donor Network West occurring annually on the first Saturday after Labor Day. The run/walk raises awareness for organ and tissue donation and encourages people to register as organ donors in California.

All proceeds from the fundraiser benefit the effort to inspire Californians to register on the Donate Life California Organ and Tissue Donor Registry and to honor the donors and their families.

Mark your calendars for September 2020 for our 10 Year Anniversary!

On behalf of all of us at Donor Network West, we would like to thank you for joining us at our 9th Annual Donate Life Run/Walk. We had 1,200 participants, over 100 volunteers, and fundraised more than $160,000!

The Donate Life Run/Walk would not be possible without the help and support from our amazing volunteers. Each year, we need help with monitoring the course, handing out finisher medals, supplying snacks and beverages, cleaning up trash, and, of course, cheering on our runners and walkers.


  • Must be 13 years or older at the time of the event to volunteer
  • Must stay for entire shift
  • Must sign Donate Life Run/Walk volunteer waiver
  • Flexibility on your assigned task
  • A smiling face!

If interested, please complete our volunteer form.

After signing up, you will receive an email confirmation. A couple of weeks before the run/walk, you will receive your assigned tasks accompanied with important details. Volunteer hours are available for students.

To help ensure that day-of operations run smoothly, we kindly ask that volunteers not participate in the run/walk.
