History Made in Lubbock with First-Ever 2nd Chance Run
On Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017, LifeGift made history with the first-ever Donate Life Texas 2nd Chance Run in Lubbock.
Nearly 300 participants, including a family from England, came out to Mackenzie Park to celebrate the gift of life through organ, eye and tissue donation.
“We built a great foundation for the race and look forward to the years come,” said Justin Johnson, senior managing director of clinical operations. “This was a fun and engaging way to offer hope to the people of West Texas and build awareness around donation.”
The 2nd Chance Run has its roots in Fort Worth and began there 15 years ago. It started as a small group of volunteers getting together and hosting a race. Who knew then that it would grow into an annual tradition in Houston and in Lubbock?
