Join us for Nebraska’s biggest event celebrating organ, tissue and eye donation

The 2022 Rally for Life is a 5K run/walk event to support organ, tissue and eye donation. Join forces with donor families, recipients, living donors and donation supporters as we honor our donor heroes and fight to make a difference for the 100,000 Americans in need of a lifesaving transplant.

We rally for hope. We rally for our heroes. We rally for life.


Everyone should enter Werner Park ready for a fun, family-friendly atmosphere that celebrates the heroes of the donation and transplantation community. In addition, all registered participants get:

  • Race timing by Precision Race Results
  • Free kids activities in the Werner Park Family Fun Zone
