THE STORY:

Team Donate Life, supporting the New York Organ Donor Network, will take part in the
Nautica New York City Triathlon on August 7th, 2011! All funds raised through Team Donate
Life will be used to support the Donor Network’s public education programs to increase
enrollments in the New York State Donate Life Registry. The organization’s education
programs reach out to health care professionals and the general public in the greater New York metropolitan area. The goal is to save the lives of more than 9,000 people in New York State who are waiting for organ transplants.

Since New York has only 13% of its population enrolled on the New York State registry, which is one of the worst rates in the country, we want to encourage more people to sign up. We also want to, demonstrate that transplantation works, and at the same time encourage more people to take care of their health.

The New York Organ Donor Network is the second largest nonprofit, federally designated
organ procurement organization in the US. Serving 13 million people in the greater New York
metropolitan area, the Donor Network seeks family consent when there is no documented legally-binding registry enrollment. The organization coordinates all organ and tissue donation in New York City and its surrounding counties.

The Donate Life Team was founded in 2009 by heart recipient and Donor Network volunteer, John Acquaro, who was diagnosed with a progressive heart disease 23 years ago for which there is no cure. On April 1, 2007, John received a heart – and the gift of life – from a brave and generous 23 year old woman and her family. Realizing that life is not to be taken for granted, John and his teammates are swimming, biking and running in honor of this anonymous donor and on behalf of the over 110,000 people on the waiting list in the United States – and to save lives.
