BENEFITING: Gift of Life Donor Program

ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION

EVENT: YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR CAUSE

Jim Melwert

THE STORY:

It's been almost 10 years since I gave my kidney to my Aunt Jean, since then I've married the girl of my dreams and have two beautiful daughters. Now it's time to give back. I'm fundraising for The Gift of Life Donor Program. I don't have to raise money, I paid for the race, but I want to. I know how lucky I am to be an Ironman and I want to share that. I'm hoping to raise $10 per mile for a total of $1,406.00

There are more than 123,000 people nationwide waiting for a transplant -- 6,300 of them in the Philadelphia region. Every 10 minutes someone is added to the list. Each day, across the country 21 people waiting for a transplant die.

Join me in supporting The Gift of Life as they work to change that. In 2014, Gift of Life celebrated its 40th anniversary by successfully coordinating 1,133 life-saving organ transplants from 447 donors in our region.

If you can't give money, please be sure to sign up to an organ donor. Each donor is able to save the lives of up to eight people through organ donation and enhance the lives of up to 50 individuals through tissue donation.
