Hero Hustle 5K Run/Walk

Calling all runners, walkers, and donation supporters! Community Tissue Services of Northwest Ohio and Life Connection of Ohio are proud to present the first annual Hero Hustle 5K Run/Walk on November 1, 2014 in Maumee, Ohio!

Hero Hustle Logo

The mission of the Hero Hustle 5K Run/Walk is to strengthen support, education and recognition of organ, eye and tissue donation in northwest Ohio.

We are hoping that our community will rally together to make this a GREAT first year for this event! Organ, eye and tissue donor families, recipients, living donors, supporters, friends, family, and anyone else in support of donation are all invited to participate!

The theme for this event has a close tie to organ, eye and tissue donation, and truly represents how we feel about those who are affected by it. While the true “heroes” are the donors themselves, there is still a hero inside of us all: the donor families who gave so

generously, the transplant recipients who endure their own challenges and lives on in remembrance of their donors, and ANYONE who is a registered organ, eye and tissue donor.  We ALL have the potential for greatness and to be someone’s hero!

Hero Hustle 5K Run/Walk

In line with the “hero” theme of this race, we also want to encourage kids of all ages to wear their favorite super hero costumes (while still being able to run/walk and see safely!)

Registration is OPEN and can be done online HERE! Also be sure to stay tuned with our Facebook page for more information and to stay up to date as we get closer to the race!

We hope you’ll join us and be one of the Hustling Heroes on November 1st!

Alex and Ani & Donate Life America Partnership

jewelry, donate life

Looking for a unique gift idea for a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion? Donate Life America partnered with Alex and Ani, the fastest growing Rhode Island-based lifestyle brand, through the launch of the Life Preserver signature expandable wire bangle. The Life Preserver symbolizes the lifesaving impact that organ, eye and tissue donation has for tens of thousands of people each year. Through December 2015, 20% of proceeds received by Alex and Ani from selling the Life Preserver bangle, with a minimum donation of $25,000, will be donated to Donate Life America.

We think this is a really cool partnership and wearing the bangle is a great way to spread the word about organ, eye and tissue donation! The Life Preserver Charm Bangle is now available for purchase in Alex and Ani store locations nationwide, online at http://www.alexandani.com/life-preserver-charm-bangle.html and through various retail partners.
