Our fourth annual Donate Life Legacy Walk will look different this year. With our transition to a virtual event, we developed a toolkit to help attendees engage leading up to and during the Legacy Walk.

We encourage attendees to use these assets around your homes or on your social media pages, as well as to participate in our spirit award contest.

The following materials are available for download and use for the 2020 Legacy Walk:
