Celebrate the gift of life and honor those that have made the incredible decision to say YES to organ and tissue donation!
Join us on September 22nd for the kLaVoy Donate Life 5K Walk and Run, a community event to help raise awareness about organ & tissue donation and celebrate all heroes of donation! The course is beautiful, fast and flat, and yes, (leashed) dogs are welcome!
Walk, run and celebrate as an individual or create your own team! What are the benefits of creating a team?
We’re glad you asked:
1. Honor the person in your life that has given or received the Gift of Life!
2. Join together with the CDT community for a celebration of the lives of donors, recipients, and donor families!
3. Help CDT expand its ability to educate the upstate New York and Western Vermont communities on the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation and support donor families!
4. Become a champion for organ, eye and tissue donation in your hospital, neighborhood or community organization!
Together, we can make an even greater impact on our community by promoting your team and the race to encourage our friends and neighbors to make the decision to DONATE LIFE by joining the donor registry.
This year we’ve set a big fundraising goal – we’re looking to raise $20,000 but TOGETHER, with our amazing community, we can do it!
In 2017, CDT had a record lifesaving year, working with our hospital partners to facilitate over 60 organ donors and 109 tissue donors, which resulted in 160+ lifesaving organ transplants and several hundred tissue recipients with an improved quality of life.
As we continue to focus on the powerful effect each of us can make as an organ, eye and tissue donor, please keep in mind that all funds raised in 2018, including proceeds from this race, will go directly to CDT programming that supports donor families and community outreach and education initiatives to help make even MORE life possible!
