> 17th Annual Race for Life
On Saturday, April 9th, 2022, we are racing in honor of organ, eye, and tissue donation in South Carolina in downtown Folly Beach, alongside the beautiful Atlantic Ocean!
Starting at the Folly Beach Pier, we will celebrate National Donate Life Month, offering both a 5K and 10K race route. If you prefer to complete the distance on your own time, the Hero at Home registration option is the one for you! No matter your race preference, we look forward to seeing you in your best blue and green!
Run in honor of your loved one, to celebrate your second chance at life, to support the mission of donation.
Create a team and share your story as we inspire our community! The Race for Life is a fundraising event, supporting SHSC statewide outreach and education efforts. Fundraising platforms are available to both teams and individual racers. Please contact Victoria Dhindsa if you have additional questions regarding registration, creating a team, make a donation, or sponsorships available for the Race for Life.
The 10K race will begin promptly at 7:30 AM with the 5K following at 7:45 AM. Due to the number of people attending, we encourage carpooling with friends, family, or those on your team and arriving early! Volunteers on site will help direct you to the best parking areas. Join us at Loggerhead’s after the race to celebrate the Largest Team and Top Fundraising Team!
“Once I got my new kidney…I realized, OH! This is what feeling good feels like!” says Everett German, Kidney Recipient.
“I am the language of hope,” says Edelena Butler, Public Education Coordinator! Say YES to donation today!
> A Personal Decision
The Public Education team at We Are Sharing Hope SC is committed to investing in the community, answering questions and inspiring others to make their donation decision known.
Organ and tissue donation is a very personal decision and by addressing the misconceptions that exist, SHSC is working to create a culture of donation in South Carolina – one “yes” at a time.
