With only two weeks left, Sparrow asks for region’s help in winning statewide organ donation challenge
LANSING, MI – With only a couple weeks left in a statewide organ donation challenge, Sparrow is asking everyone in mid-Michigan to help us add the most names to the Michigan Organ Donor Registry and provide a second chance at life for many.
You may have seen us at local high school football games and various community events as we try to top the 241 names we signed up during last year’s Michigan Gift of Life Hospital Challenge. It’s not about the competition but about lending hope to about 3,200 people in Michigan who are desperately waiting for a transplant.
If you’re not among the 65 percent of Michigan adults who are registered organ and tissue donors, go to www.golm.org/go/sparrow by Nov. 9 to be counted in the Challenge. If you think you’re a registered donor but aren’t sure, check your driver’s license or state ID for a little red heart symbol in the lower right corner.
Sparrow, the regional trauma center for mid-Michigan, is among the statewide leaders in tissue and organ donations and has worked closely with Gift of Life to support donors and their families.
Choose Wisely. Choose Sparrow.
