Make a Difference and Sponsor Red Shoe Run Today!

The 15th Annual Red Shoe Run for Donor Awareness will be held in Rockford on Saturday, April 14, 2018.  Last year this growing event involved over 1000 participants – community members who use your products and services.  The Red Shoe Run for Donor Awareness is a competitive 5K run and 1 mile family, fitness walk held every April to celebrate National Donate Life Month and raise awareness about the lifesaving need for increased organ, tissue, eye, blood and marrow cell donations and to raise critically needed funds to further develop the RRVBC Be the Match program serving Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Missouri.

Medical technology has given us the treatment for formerly incurable diseases, but for too many, there is no donor to help them.

Help us change their odds. Become a sponsor today and help us make a difference by educating and registering local heroes who want to save lives.
