FAMILY-FRIENDLY EVENT (3km Walk; 5km Walk/Run and 10km Run)

Dogs must on a leash. Strollers are permitted. Bikes are not encouraged due to the volume of participants.
AWARDS AND PRIZES
Awards will be presented to the top 3 female and top 3 male finishers in 10km category. Door prizes will be drawn after the Race using the name/address tickets from each Race Bib. Each registrant will receive a “Race Kit” containing a t-shirt and swag bag.

CALGARY’S TRANSPLANT TROT COMMITTEE
CTA Calgary thanks the following 2018 sponsors and partners for the NOTDAW Walk, the Wind Up to NOTDAW event and the 7th Annual Transplant Trot!
Canadian Transplant Association
The CTA is a registered charitable organization comprised of transplant recipients/athletes, health care professionals, supporters and volunteers dedicated to promoting organ and tissue donation through public advocacy, educational programs, and awareness events such as the Canadian Transplant Games and World Transplant Games. Funds from this event will support the CTA mission of raising organ donor awareness.
The CTA provides a support network for organ transplant recipients before and after transplantation while promoting organ and tissue donation, as more than 4500 Canadians await a second chance at life. Check us out at Canadian Transplant Association
How to become an Organ and Tissue Donor in Alberta:
Alberta has had an online organ donor registry for three years now with over 531,000 Albertans having registered their consent to donate as of July 31, 2018. Check your status or register your intent to donate online at: UltimateGiftAlberta.ca
BUT most importantly, be sure to share your wishes with your family. Please encourage others to talk about organ donation now before it’s needed so that families will be empowered with the knowledge to make informed decisions when the time comes.
