MORA’s National Donate Life Month Calendar of Events for April 2014

April is Donate Life Month, and the Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency is hosting the biggest celebration in the agency’s history. For the first time, events and participation will be STATEWIDE in scope. Scheduled events will promote the importance of donation – the life-saving and life-enhancing benefits of registering as an organ donor and tissue donor. There are many ways to get involved with the celebration: you can volunteer to help at one of our events; your company can become a sponsor of the celebration; or we encourage your participation in the Racing for Donation 8k Run/ Walk and the Drive for Life Golf Tournament. Please contact the Community Outreach Department at 601.933.1000. To volunteer, email Becky Pierson at bpierson@msora.org or Chuck Stinson at cstinson@msora.org to become a sponsor!
