I'm running to help raise awareness about the lifesaving benefits of organ and tissue donation. My kidneys may not be perfect, but we run!  See more
Susan Kiddy

THE STORY:

I began running shortly after being diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease. I wasn't going to let a medical condition get me down, or use it as an excuse. It was time to take control of my health.


I met the Program Coordinator of DLC before I was diagnosed, but I can't help but think it was more than sheer coincidence. It is a reality that I may one day (far down the road) have personal knowledge of what it's like to be in the need of a life-saving transplant. I have volunteered my time and photographic services to capture DLC's events, and have met many wonderful people with their own amazing stories about transplantation. On October 13, I will run in honor of those who have either given or received the gift of life through transplantation and donation. My best friend's family, who made the decision to give; my former boss who is waiting for a kidney.. The list goes on and on.

 

Please consider supporting me on behalf of this cause.

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!
