Team G. Willy
Join my team for the 9th annual Donate Life Run/Walk! We are teaming up with Donor Network West to raise awareness about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation at the Donate Life Run/Walk! This event will celebrate those touched by donation and honor the donors who have given the gift of life.
Our team honors my late husband, George William Kiraly, Jr AKA G.Willy. George was one of the most kind-hearted, genuine, funny and happy people you could ever meet. He was an amazing son, brother, husband and father. When he passed away unexpectedly in July of 2018, I was happy to fulfill his wishes as a tissue donor to give the gift of life to others. Knowing that George helped improve the lives of so many through his role as a tissue donor is something that I will always be so proud of.
Funds raised from the Run/Walk help provide education on organ, eye, and tissue donation through community outreach, research, clinical events and our annual Donor Family Gatherings. Each person touched by Donor Network West’s public education campaigns, who then registers as a donor, has the potential of saving 8 lives through organ donation and improving another 75 lives through tissue donation.
It’s easy to make a difference – just click the button to the right to make a donation. Any amount helps the over 11,000 people waiting for a life-saving transplant in Northern California and Northern Nevada.
I hope you will join me in building a future where all those waiting for a transplant receive their second chance at life.
