We Are Sharing Hope SC is proud to host our annual Hope Walk 5k, celebrating National Multicultural Donor Awareness Month, on August 27, 2022.
This FREE event focuses on building awareness around the donation disparities and need in South Carolina within multicultural communities, promoting the importance of making your health and wellness a priority, and educating families about the beautiful gift of life in South Carolina.
Why should you walk for organ, eye, and tissue donation? Currently, in the State of South Carolina, over 90% of the patients waiting are currently waiting on a kidney. More than 65% of those waiting are people of color. A disproportionate amount of Black Americans suffer from diseases like diabetes, heart and kidney disease. By being proactive in taking care of your health, it’s possible to improve your quality of life.
We can’t wait to see you and your family there! Please bring your water bottle and wear comfortable sneakers.
