Gift of Life’s DonateLife Walk will be held for the ninth year on Wednesday 25 February 2015, beginning at 7am sharp.
Thousands of Canberrans are expected to take part to show their support for organ and tissue donation. The event is organised by Gift of Life and sponsored by the Australian Government’s Organ and Tissue Authority which promotes the national program in this sector.
In 2015 we’re asking every family to ‘have the chat’ with loved ones to make sure their donation decision is known.
In Australia the family of every potential donor is always asked to support the donation wishes of their loved one before organ and/or tissue donation can proceed.
The key DonateLife messages are:
- Discover the facts about organ and tissue donation
- Decide and register your organ and tissue donation decision on the Australian Organ Donor Register
- Discuss your donation decision with family and close friends
- Visit donatelife.gov.au for more information
This is important because organ and tissue donation saves lives. One donor can transform the lives of 10 or more people.
