Join us in 2019 for the Celebration of Life 5K

Thank you for supporting Team Luke and the NJ Sharing Network
as we honor Luke David Bautista along with other organ and tissue donors, pay tribute to recipients, offer hope to those who continue to wait and remember the lives lost while waiting for the Gift of Life.
The Celebration of Life 5K will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2019, in Long Branch, NJ. It will mark the fourth time Team Luke participates in this annual event! Luke died about a month after he turned 15, but was able to provide 5 life saving gifts (his heart, both kidneys, liver and pancreas). We've even had the privilege of meeting his left kidney and pancreas recipients.
In addition, Luke was able to donate his descending thoracic aorta, which aided in the creation of dialysis ports and his tissue donations have also helped save and improve the lives of countless others.
— Team Luke has averaged just over 200 members in each of our first 3 years
— In 2018, we eclipsed the $200,000 mark in terms of total dollars raised by Team Luke

Luke Honored on the Donate Life Rose Parade Float

Luke was honored alongside other hero donors who gave the gift of life at the 129th Rose Parade in Pasadena, California.

Thank you to Dignity Memorial Funeral Homes for sponsoring and sending us to Pasadena and to NJ Sharing Network for their continuous support. We know Luke was with us all the way!

Before the parade, we unveiled Luke's floragraph during a ceremony at Jersey Shore University Medical Center and his brother CJ delivered a beautiful speech.
