Tally of Runners and Spirit Runners at Neon 5k

April 7, 2017

There were 238 runners in this year's Lights for Life Neon 5K. Thirty-four registered a few hours before the race.

There were 47 spirit runners, which are people who buy T-shirts and show their support. It was a beautiful night, with a 3.1-mile route through a tree-lined neighborhood with a mix of old and new homes. The neighbors in this quiet area of East Memphis welcomed our participants, who ran and walked to help the National Foundation for Transplants raise funds for our mission of helping people raise money for costly organ transplants.

Our thanks to the nearly 300 individuals who came out to show their support. We appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts, kidneys, livers and other vital, healthy organs that bless us to use and to donate.
