THE STORY:

Hi! I'm Maddy, I'm 13 and I am a freshman at Immaculate High School in Danbury, CT.  When I was 10 my uncle received his much needed liver transplant after many years of waiting.  Since then my family has been very much invloved with Donate Life and American Liver Foundation.  This is my first attempt on a half marathon.  I am running with my dad and uncle to raise awarness for the need of organ donors and to show my support for those families that have had a loved one with an illness affecting a vital organ, or has lost one.  Good luck with your training and the run.  

Donate Life Connecticut wrote -

Did you know 1 organ and tissue donor can SAVE and IMPROVE the lives of 75 people?

Donate Life Connecticut is dedicated to increasing the number of registered organ and tissue donors through outreach and education. Our organization is Volunteer driven...people that have received an organ/tissue transplant, donor families whose loved ones gave the gift of life, living donors, friends and family. We are all passionate about sharing our stories and raising awareness.

Right here in Connecticut more than 1,260 men, women and children wait for a life-saving transplant...and more than 114,000 Americans wait nationwide. Unfortunately, 18 people will die every day simply because an organ did not come in time. We want to change these statistics. More registered donors means more transplants...MORE LIVES SAVED.

THANK YOU for JOINING OUR TEAM! THANK YOU for supporting our cause!

Together we can raise awareness! Together we can save lives!

 

P.S. If you are so generous to donate to our cause- please be aware during check out to UNCLICK the option at check out to pay a processing fee (this is a 'tip' of sorts to the fundraising company - and does not offset the credit card fee charged to Donate Life CT). Bring the drop down menu 'tip' processing fee to $0.  Sorry for the inconvenience - but we don't want you to be overcharged your intended gift. Thank you!

Maddy- Having teenagers myself I know a thing or two about you guys :) I want you to take a moment and truly realize how incredible you are for doing this. I was 20 when my mom passed away from an unsuccessful liver transplant and it took another 20 years for me to realize how important it is to bring about awareness of organ donation. Please take a moment to be proud of yourself and of course that awesome man you call uncle 5 years ago
