(WJBK) - A special walk is happening Saturday morning to encourage people to give the gift of life.
The LIFE Walk/Run is Michigan's largest donation event, bringing together people of all ages to honor the lives of organ, tissue, and eye donors, to celebrate those who have received the gift of life, and to give hope to people who continue to wait for a life-saving transplant.
The walk is Saturday, July 29 at Belle Isle.
The walk is in partnership with The Gift of Life Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program (MOTTEP) and the City of Detroit.
Terra Defoe with the City of Detroit and Remonia Chapman with Gift of Life Michigan joined us in studio to tell us more about the walk. You can hear from them in the video player above.
