More than 6,000 people, all touched in some way by organ and tissue donation and transplantation, walked or ran through the streets of New Providence on June 9th in the 3rd Annual NJ Sharing Network 5K Walk & USATF-Certified Race. The event has raised a record-breaking $680,000 so far, though the amount is expected to rise as teams and individuals continue to fundraise until July 15. Poignant stories of lives saved and final acts of kindness were shared and captured on film and video. We encourage you to view our 2013 5K highlight video. Enjoy!
Close to 200 guests attended the unveiling of our new Landscape of Life tribute wall on May 9. Created to honor organ and tissue donors, transplant recipients, and those who continue to wait for the gift of life, the tribute wall acknowledges contributions made in their honor or memory. Check out our Landscape of Life photo album to view pictures from the moving ceremony.
My religion forbids me from donating my organs. Donor families have to pay to have a loved one’s organs recovered. My body will be mutilated if I donate my organs. There are a lot of misconceptions about organ and tissue donation. Emmy award-winning talk show host Kelly Ripa talks myths and facts about organ and tissue donation with ABC News Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser.
