Liver Life Walk Carolinas


The Liver Life Walk is a signature event of the American Liver Foundation (ALF). Providing an inspirational and festive environment, Liver Life Walk events give participants an opportunity to come together and raise awareness and funds in support of the liver community.

Funds raised through the Liver Life Walk benefit the 100 million Americans affected by liver disease through resources, education and support services and help advance our advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill and liver disease research. Together, we are moving closer to a world without liver disease.
