UPDATE: The Northeast Wisconsin Donate Life Walk will be now be held May 5th. A record snowfall forced the cancellation of the walk which was originally scheduled for the morning of April 14th in Howard. Organizers are hopeful that walkers will be able to reschedule for May 5th, and we’ll have better weather!
The N.E.W. Donate Life Walk raises awareness for organ transplantation and donation. The event also raises funds to support these efforts through the annual fun run/walk. Online registration is now closed, but onsite registration opens at 8 a.m. Saturday.
Local 5’s Erin Davisson is a transplant recipient and will be emceeing the event. For more on the walk click here.
