Donate Life Run/Walk 2020

Powered By Izzy

It's that time again!  Join our team for the 10th annual Donate Life Run/Walk.  Sadly it will be virtual this time but the need is as great as ever!  

As you know I received a heart transplant when I was just 10 weeks old.  I am 14 (almost 15) and doing great!  All thanks to a family who gave me the gift of life!   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.

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 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 us 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, like I did!

Forever grateful!

 

Izzy and family
