Raising awareness for lifesaving organ and tissue donation
Thank you for your generous support!
Our main goal is to raise awareness for the tremendous need of organ and tissue donation and ultimately increase the number of registered organ donors. This year we are pleased to introduce the Opt-In For Life Memorial Scholarship in Honor of Joseph D. Fischbach, Jr. All donations received will go directly to this fund. Some facts: In the United States, more than 115,000 men, women and children currently need lifesaving organ transplants. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list. An average of 18 people die each day from the lack of available organs for transplant. In 2011, there were 8,127 deceased organ donors and 6,017 living organ donors resulting in 28,535 organ transplants. According to research, 98% of all adults have heard about organ donation and 86% have heard of tissue donation. 90% of Americans say they support donation, but only 30% know the essential steps to take to be a donor. Again, we appreciate your support and hope that you join us for the race on April 14th! Sincerest thanks, Team OPT-IN FOR LIFE
