The Lifesavers Leadership Breakfast is Detroit MOTTEP's annual kickoff event for LIFE Walk/Run.  It's also our way to thank our corporate and community partners, as well as, our dedicated volunteers who have been instrumental in the success of our various programs. It is also a time to welcome and engage new partners in raising awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation and how it has saved and enhanced countless lives. We welcome you to come and hear recipients and donor families share their stories. It's about everyone working together to transform lives and building a healthier community.
