Gift of Life Donor Program Messaging on Covid-19
The increased risk in our area associated with coronavirus has greatly impacted our day-to-day lives. Our concern is first and foremost for the health and well-being of our community, volunteers, transplant recipients and donor families. If you are scheduled to volunteer or participate in any Gift of Life Donor Program events this month, please note that we are suspending all in-person events and programs through April 30. To see our full events calendar, click here.
We are closely monitoring local, state and federal guidance, and will provide updates via our website, social media and other communication channels about programming after April. However, due to its size, we have already decided to postpone the 25th Annual Donor Dash, originally scheduled for April 19.
We understand and firmly support the need for heightened sensitivity and precautions related to infectious diseases. We join everyone in hoping that COVID-19 will soon be contained, and in wanting to do everything we can to support this. Our thoughts are with everyone who is facing or concerned about illness.
