13th Annual Gibson 5K Run/Walk

May 28, 2009

NFT is excited to join the festivities at this year’s Gibson 5K Run/Walk! Our Transplant Challenge team will be onsite in full force to raise awareness about the importance of organ donation!

With performances by Elmo & The Shades and a special appearance by American Idol’s Alexis Grace, we know this will be an exciting evening! We hope everyone can join in the fun by participating in this annual event, benefiting the St. Patrick Learning Center, and help save lives by registering to become an organ donor.

Did you know:

  • 18 people die each day waiting for a liver transplant.
  • Every 11 minutes another name is added to the transplant waiting list.
  • 90% of Americans say they support organ donation, yet only 35% of licensed drivers or ID card holders have enrolled in a state registry.
  • 1 organ donor can save 8 lives.
