BENEFITING: Donate Life Connecticut
ORGANIZER: Donate Life Connecticut
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013
This year i will be running the 5K to help raise awareness for a cause that is so near and dear to Billy and I. Four years ago Billy was faced with the need for a kidney transplant and placed on the waiting list. in the mean time, i decided to get tested to see if i could be a donor. And low and behold, a match we were!! His health is so much improved and our family is able to enjoy special times together once again. Donating really does make a difference. please consider helping us raise the awareness by supporting me in my run. no matter how small a donation, together we can all make a difference. thank you
Donate Life Connecticut is dedicated to increasing the number of registered organ and tissue donors through outreach and education. Our organization is Volunteer driven...people that have received an organ/tissue transplant, donor families whose loved ones gave the gift of life, living donors, friends and family. We are all passionate about sharing our stories and raising awareness.
Right here in Connecticut more than 1,355 men, women and children wait for a life-saving transplant...and more than 118,000 Americans wait nationwide. Unfortunately, 18 people will die every day simply because an organ did not come in time. We want to change these statistics. More registered donors means more transplants...MORE LIVES SAVED.
THANK YOU for JOINING OUR TEAM! THANK YOU for supporting our cause!
Together we can raise awareness! Together we can save lives!
