We would love to say that it was a perfect day for the Donate Life Walk, but alas, Mother Nature was certainly not cooperative for participants on September 8th. The rains started early Saturday morning and didn’t stop until long after the walk was over. But we made it work!
Despite the heavy rain and wind, over 250 walkers took part in the 1.78 mile walk around the ring at Delaware Park in Buffalo. After the rainy walk, particpants dried off while having lunch and enjoying some of the activities under the kids tent.
Unfortunately, we were unable to go ahead with the planting in our memorial garden because of the weather, but our donor families will be putting new shrubs and flowers into the ground to make the memorial garden even more memorable.
A huge “Thank You” to all of our walkers and volunteers for continuing to help us spread awareness for organ, eye, tissue and blood donation!
