Victoria's Run For Life 5K
Oct. 3, 2021
On February 25, 2019 Victoria McDonnell suffered a fatal brain aneurysm at the age of 26. She died a hero by being an organ donor. Victoria's last act of kindness was to donate her organs - saving the lives of three people. Please join us at Clove Lakes Park at Stonehenge, Staten Island, N.Y., on October 3 at 10am for a 5K race in her memory. We hope this run will honor Victoria’s life and bring awareness to the need and importance of the gift of life through organ donation and transplantation. All proceeds from “Victoria’s Run” will go to the LiveOnNY Foundation to help organ donor and recipient families. Register: https://bit.ly/3n6k1Y5
