Mission Statement

We have been raising awareness for organ, tissue, & eye donation since 2015.


Cream City 5K is a 501c3 nonprofit founded in 2015 by Jesse Pagels as a way to raise awareness and support organ, eye, and tissue donation. A professional trumpet player and runner, Jesse overcame a decade-long battle with pulmonary fibrosis thanks to a double lung transplant. This gift of life inspired Jesse to start Cream City 5K, which donates all proceeds to Versiti Organ and Tissue, as well as other organizations that support organ donation throughout Wisconsin.
