Liv’s Run for Life annual 5K event will be held on Saturday, April 21st in Downtown Springfield at Jordan Valley Park!
What exactly is Liv’s Run for Life? The run was created to help fund both the Liv a Life of Love Foundation promoting organ donation awareness through community outreach and offers financial support for transplant recipient families.
Learn more about ‘Liv’, the inspiration behind the run: Olivia lived a life full of purpose and exuberance. She was genuine, kind hearted, and no respecter of person. Liv was uninfluenced by consideration of someone’s popularity, but was rather a friend to all. Those blessed to know her, love to recall memories they shared and have spoken not just of her outer beauty but also of her contagious laughter, sweet spirit, and vibrant personality.
She made the personal decision to register as an organ donor at age sixteen. In her passing she selflessly saved the lives of five individuals. That precious gift required monumental heartache for those who knew and loved her in exchange for joy to those she offered life.
The unfathomable grief of loosing a child holds as much power in it’s ability to change our lives as love. I’m forever grateful for Liv’s selfless decision to be a life giver. By choosing to Liv(e) Twice she afforded me the opportunity to channel my personal heartache into hope for other families. Remembering daily that her big beautiful heart continues to beat, helps mend my own that is still broken.
