New Jersey Walk The Walk

The 19th Annual Walk the Walk was held on May 7, 2018 in Point Pleasant Beach and helped save lives in the process. Our annual WALK the WALK for Organ and Tissue Donation was a fun and healthful way of raising awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation and how easy it is to become a donor. The money we raised will go directly to research, patient services, and public and professional education. The 2019 Walk was cancelled due to the untimely passing of KUFA's Director but will return in 2020 for the 20th.
