Join my team for the 9th annual Donate Life Run/Walk! This event helps to raise awareness about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation, celebrate those touched by donation, and honor the donors who have given the gift of life.
Transplant Recipients International Organization, Inc. (TRIO-San Francisco Cay Area Chapter) is a non-profit international organization committed to improving the quality of lives touched by the miracle of transplantation through support, advocacy, education, and awareness. Through the TRIO International Office in Washington, DC, a network of chapters throughout the United States and the world, TRIO provides a range of services to its community, including Awareness, Support, Education and Advocacy.
Since its incorporation in 1987, TRIO has grown tremendously. A network of chapters, with many support groups in varying phases of development, provides a peer-counseling support system and facilitates programs to educate the public about the acute need for donation.
Each year, TRIO's Scholarship Program gives thousands of dollars in academic grants to members and their families. In the past 22 years TRIO has awarded approximately 145 scholarships to deserving students who are transplant candidates, recipients, donors or their family members. These scholarships are generously funded by several TRIO chapters, individuals and interested organizations. Each recipient receives $1,000 toward their education at colleges and universities throughout the United States.
It’s easy to make a difference just click the button to the left and join my team. If you’re unable to join, you can still help by making a donation. Any amount helps the over 22,000 people waiting for a life-saving transplant in Northern California and Northern Nevada.
I hope you will join me at the Donate Life Run/Walk and help to build a future where all those waiting for a transplant receive their second chance at life.
