The 2020 Rochester River Run is postponed out of an abundance of caution, due to the COVID-19 virus. We are planning to announce a new date when circumstances allow.

Thank you for your support and understanding. ###

Run, walk or pledge your support at the 19th annual Rochester River Run/Walk 5K, celebrating and supporting transplant patients and organ donors at Strong Memorial Hospital.

Co-sponsored by Friends of Strong and the hospital’s transplant programs, the River Run benefits transplant patients who are awaiting or recovering from organ transplant surgery. All proceeds go toward helping our patients pay for expenses associated with lifelong care, such as life-saving medications and travel expenses.

Get more information on the River Run/Walk 5K, collecting pledges, and race day logistics at Register by April 15 to receive a free athletic tech-shirt to wear on race day! (Online registration continues through April 23; on-site registration is available on race day.)

Pledge Your Support
Patients who come to Strong for heart, liver, pancreas and kidney transplants often need financial assistance while they await and recover from surgery. In addition to costly medical treatment, the need to travel—some at great distance—can add strain on them and their families. Run and Walk participants are encouraged to collect pledges to help us fulfill these needs.

Pledges can be submitted at race packet pick up, on race day, or online at Donations can also be made via cash or check—please have the sponsor note the name of the participating runner or walker in the notes area of the check and form.

Today is the perfect time to consider adding your name to the Organ Donor Registry. Visit for more info.
