Colleen's BA 5K

Colleen's BA 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk is an annual event established in memory of Colleen Mitchel, who was born with liver disease (biliary atresia or BA) and died in 2013 at 19 years old from complications due to liver disease, while awaiting another liver transplant.

As a tribute to Colleen, and to aid in the effort to discover the cause of biliary atresia, her family has organized an annual community fundraiser. Colleen's BA 5K has raised and donated over $130,000 in five years! Through the Colleen Mitchel Memorial Fund, we fund efforts to raise awareness for organ donation in our community and for research at Johns Hopkins  into the root cause of biliary atresia (BA) and improving outcomes of children living with liver disease and post-transplant.
