Organ Donation Week is one of the key points in the calendar year when the transplant and members of the public join together to talk about, celebrate, and highlight the significance of organ donation. It's a key opportunity to educate and build knowledge, point people to information and remind people of the need to add their name to the Organ Donor Register and talk to their family.
The #Race4Recipients challenge has been designed to incorporate all of the above whilst getting people active and we are really excited to confirm that following the huge success last year, #RaceforRecipients 2023 is a National event and it is open to everyone, everywhere to join!
We challenge you to celebrate Organ Donation - the gift of life, and support this year's challenges:
Personal / Team Targets:
The challenge will be active from 06:00 on Saturday the 16th September, until midnight on Sunday the 24th September.
The distance can be accumulated through any kind of activity which involves you getting active (above normal day to day activity) and travelling a measurable distance.
Your level of fitness is not important - every kilometre counts! They can be generated by activities as simple as walking the dog, doing the school run or walking to the shops. No matter how you achieve your personal distance make sure you log it so we can achieve our goal and, most importantly, share your involvement across all social media platforms and encourage everyone to be involved, and to add their name to the Organ Donor Register!
You don't need a team to join and the challenge is free to enter!
Following this link will sign you up and allow you to affiliate yourself to a team - for example, you may be an individual who lives in Yorkshire and supports donation and transplantation so you could join the 'Yorkshire' region then the 'Community Team - Yorkshire' you will then join a national community of other supporters and all the kilometres you log will go towards that wider team!
