CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Thousands gathered at Blossom Music Center for Lifebanc's Gift of Life Walk & Run Saturday morning. It consisted of a 5K and 10K competitive run.

Lifebanc along with the Cleveland Clinic, Akron Children's Hospital and University Hospitals Transplant Institute is honoring the lives of organ, eye and tissue donors, while commemorating the lives of recipients and recognizing the lives of those waiting for a transplant.

This was the 16th year for Lifebanc's annual Gift of Life Walk & Run.

All proceeds from the Gift of Life Walk & Run will support initiatives to educate the community about organ, eye and tissue donation as well as Lifebanc bereavement services.

Lifebanc's educational efforts help to increase the number of individuals registering their wishes to save and heal lives as organ, eye and tissue donors.

To become a registered organ, eye and tissue donor visit www.lifebanc.org.
