Brief Overview

Crawl, Walk or Run as much as you would like as long as you would like throughout the day!! Strollers and children are welcome, but must be registered and paid to be on the field. **Luminaries can be purchased in advance or throughout the day at the event for $5, this includes the luminary bag with personal message and battery operated tea light used to illuminate the memory** I hope to have many participants’ walking/running as well as individuals, families and friends of those affected by transplants (donors and recipients) in attendance. I want to have an opening ceremony with those directly affected taking a walk around the track in honor of their journey. Then we will begin the actual relay with participants. Hot dogs, chips, baked goods and drinks will be sold in the concession area throughout the race. There will be several raffles available for items such as Apple IPODs, Kindle book readers, Nascar tickets, Concert tickets and Sporting Event tickets just to name a few. So, even if you can’t participate in the event please come and support the cause by cheering on those in the field and taking part in the raffles. Donor services will be present to pass along information and allow people to sign up to become donors. Blood assurance will also be on hand to pass along the importance of blood donation, as well as having the mobile blood bank on site if you would like to donate in Elizabeth’s honor. Through out the day I would like to have families and individuals personally touched by organ donation to tell their story and share their experiences. We will have a closing ceremony where those affected by transplant can light a luminary in the memory/honor of their loved ones. At the end of the day we will announce the winners of the prizes for the most sponsorship money raised in both the individual and group categories. Individual prize will be an Apple IPAD, group winners will each receive a spa package gift certificate redeemable for all of the following services 1-hr massage, 1-hr facial and 1-hr pedicure. pre-register at, which will guarantee you a T-shirt and spot in the race. T-shirts can not be guaranteed for those registering late. Depending on our interest, we may have to cut off the amount of participants. During the online registration process participants will be given access to a sponsorship worksheet, we ask those entering the relay to get as many sponsors as possible to raise donations ($10 minimum sponsorship, per sponsor). Participants need to bring their sponsorship sheets and money raised with them the day of packet pick up. Checks from those sponsoring you should be made out to “The Elizabeth Jetton Trust” and will be deposited the week of April 4, 2011.



Organ donation is VERY important! Our family has been touched in two ways this year. This summer a family member lost his life and saved others by donating 5 of his organs. Elizabeth is currently waiting for a lung transplant. I would like to host this event in memory of my brother-in-law Patrick Weaver and in honor of my niece Elizabeth Jetton.
