Donor Alliance Invites Wyoming Residents to Celebrate National Donate Life Month at the Annual Wyoming Donor Dash and Other Events Across the State

Residents are encouraged to share their stories with the community to raise awareness for organ, eye and tissue donation and honor those that have given the gift of life

In honor of National Donate Life Month this April, Donor Alliance is inviting Wyoming residents to celebrate the gift of life by raising awareness for organ, eye and tissue donation at events across Wyoming. Ranging from the upcoming Wyoming Donor Dash event on April 23rd at the Tate Pumphouse to celebrations at Driver Services and hospitals across Wyoming, there are plenty of opportunities for Wyoming residents to honor the lives of donors, celebrate the lives of recipients and raise awareness for those still waiting for a lifesaving transplant.

“Wyoming continues to make an incredible impact when it comes to residents who have signed up as organ and tissue donors,” said Jennifer Prinz, president and CEO of Donor Alliance. “As we honor National Donate Life Month in Wyoming, we’re aiming to grow awareness and support of the generous gift of organ and tissue donation. In addition to raising awareness for this important cause and encouraging more people to sign up to become organ, eye and tissue donors, sharing the stories of our friends, family and neighbors gives hope to those on the waitlist.”

Wyoming Donor Dash 5K Walk/Run

This year’s annual Wyoming Donor Dash returns to the Tate Pumphouse along the Platte River Trails. As the first running event in the spring season in the area, everyone is invited to join the annual 5k walk/run honoring and raising awareness for organ, eye and tissue donation in Wyoming. Taking place on April 23rd at 8 a.m., the Wyoming Donor Dash will feature a 5K walk/run, speakers including donor families and transplant recipients to share the impact of organ donation, and touching moments where attendees drop blue and green carnations into the North Platte River as the peaceful waters carry their blessings & prayers onward.

This year, we’re honored to host two incredible mothers, Ashlee Ferre and Jaimie Robertson. Both are mothers of donors who will be on hand to share their stories and the impacts that their children’s gifts of life have had. Also sharing the impact of the gift of life is Jaimie’s son’s heart recipient and his family. Beyond sharing their stories to encourage others to say yes to giving the gift of life, these strong mothers are also sharing their stories as an example of the incredible support of their community.

Blue and Green Day

In honor of Blue and Green Day on April 22, twenty-one of the state’s Driver Services offices in addition to hospitals across Wyoming are honoring the day with celebrations and office decorations. Additionally, on Monday, April 11th, Governor Gordon proclaimed it Blue & Green Day across the state by signing a Donate Life Blue & Green Day Proclamation. The Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center will also light up in blue & green lights to celebrate the gift of life on April 22.

Wyoming residents are encouraged to join the celebration by dressing in blue and green to raise awareness for organ, eye, and tissue donation, honor those heroes who have given the gift of life and highlight the need for more registered donors. Share a picture on social media using #ShineALight to help raise awareness and give hope to the more than 1,500 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant in our communities.
