Overview

Get your costume ready for the Donate Life Hero Run celebrating the superhero in all of us and supporting Donate Life NC!  
 

 
Join us on March 25, 2017 for a fun day featuring 5K, 10K and 1 mile run and a lively afterparty in the beautiful Clayton community of Portofino. All ages welcome. Strollers are welcome in the 1 mile fun run.

This race will include certified 5K and 10K courses on paved road and unpaved bridle paths.
 
We love dogs but, as Portofino is a horse community, please leave dogs at home for their safety.

This race launched in 2016, when the Blackmon family of Clayton decided to give back following the successful, life-saving liver transplant for their infant daughter Sofie. Because of the incredible generosity of a donor family, Sofie is a happy, healthy little girl today.Sofie today!
