The Legacy Garden is a special place within the Gift of Life Walk and Run honoring individuals whose lives have been touched by organ, tissue, eye donation or transplantation. The Legacy Garden is filled with photograph-bearing signs celebrating the lives of those touched by the Gift of Life. You can purchase a Legacy Garden sign online when you registers but we also ask that you send in a completed form to provide important information. You can also print the Legacy Garden Order Form and mail the order to Lifebanc. *
In an opening ceremony, held inside the garden for those who have purchased a sign, hundreds of balloons are launched in memory of those who gave the gift of life, honor living donors, transplant recipients and to give hope to those waiting.
* Please note that the purchase of a Legacy Garden sign is in addition to the Gift of Life Walk & Run registration fee.
There will be a line of T-Shirts displayed along the walk route that allows each team to be represented with their creatively designed shirts (past or present). It's a great way to display who the teams are and why they are passionate about participating in the Gift of Life Walk and Run.
If you would like your team represented on T-Shirt Row, simply bring one Team T-Shirt to the Lifebanc office (4775 Richmond Rd. Cleveland, OH 44128) anytime during business hours, or drop it off on Packet Pick-Up Day, Wednesday, August 6th between 8am-7pm.
T-shirts will be hung up on T-Shirt Row by Lifebanc staff and will not be returned, as we will continue to display them each year.
We’re excited to celebrate our first T-Shirt Row and hope YOUR team t-shirt will be there!!!
