(WIBW) - People are invited to promote efforts to donate life this weekend.
The 18th annual Run for Life is Saturday, April 6, at Washburn University. Checkin and a health fair will be held in Lee Arena.
A 10-mile run steps off at 8:30 am with two mile runners and walkers leaving five minutes later.
Proceeds benefit the Topeka Organ Transplant Organization, assisting families with transplant expenses.
If you want to be an organ donor, head to www.donatelifekansas.com to ensure you're on the state's first-person registry - it's like an advance directive to make your wishes known.
Since it started in November 2010, some 900,000 Kansans have joined. You also now can declare when you renew your drivers license.
