On Sunday, June 23, hundreds of teammates will come together to run the 2019 Boston Athletic Association’s (B.A.A.) 10K® road race to support Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital (BWFH ).
The Brigham and Women's Hospital Living Donor Center is devoted to helping prospective living kidney donors navigate the complexities of donation, from the moment that they first express interest in kidney donation through long-term health maintenance and follow up post-donation. Donating a kidney to another human being is a wonderful gift, and also a very significant one. It is our mission to support our donors through the process as seamlessly as possible.
All funds raised through this event will be used to support and recognize BWH living kidney donors. This will allow us to do such things as: cover hospital parking costs or unanticipated expenses incurred as a result of kidney donation, develop enhanced educational materials for prospective donors, and defray the costs of events designed to educate, support, and recognize kidney donors and their families.
