FAIRLAWN: Lifebanc will host a kickoff from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Summit Mall to recruit individuals and teams for its annual Gift of Life Walk and Run at the Macy's concourse at Summit Mall.


All attendees will receive a free tote bag and fundraising materials with registration for the Gift of Life Walk and Run. Participants can also order a customized banner with their team name.

The Gift of Life Walk and Run will be held Aug. 3 at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls.


The event includes a 5K and 10K run, as well as entertainment, refreshments, kids activities and more. Proceeds from the walk and run provide the financial support necessary for staff and volunteers to educate nearly 100,000 students and adults annually about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation.
