Jenny’s Legacy: 5K Race (In-Person & Virtual)

Jan. 29, 2022
Partner Event

Five years gone, five lives saved through organ donation, a 5K in honor of Jenny Eggers Attenasio who gave the gift of life. Jenny passed away at the young age of 37 when she suffered a pulmonary embolism after giving birth. Jenny lives on in the resilient people who are now thriving thanks to her organ donations. She lives on in all who remember her. Jenny died exactly as she lived – with generosity, selflessness and strength. The race will honor Jenny’s life and legacy and encourage others to come together as a community in support of causes that were meaningful to her. Proceeds from the race will benefit the LiveOnNY Foundation and Asphalt Green. An in-person event will be held in California and there will also be a virtual race for those outside the state who would like to run in her honor. Sign up to join the virtual race here: https://runsignup.com/Race/CA/Concord/JennysLegacy5K

National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month

Aug. 1, 2022
LiveOnNY Event

National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month takes place each August and is a time dedicated to saving and improving lives in diverse communities by advocating for those awaiting a lifesaving transplant and by creating a positive culture for organ, eye and tissue donation.

Throughout the month, LiveOnNY is asking partners to share diverse stories of transplant recipients and heroic donors to show the transformative impact donation has on people and their families. We encourage all to learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation and to have conversations with their loved ones about their wishes. Together we can use our kindness and generosity to improve health outcomes in our communities. For more information visit: LiveOnNY.org/nmdam
