Our education and outreach extends across the greater New York City Metropolitan Area. Events in our community include providing education, inspiring registrations, sharing stories about those touched by donation and more. Together, our volunteers unite to raise awareness about the power of organ donation. Take a look at some of the events around the area. Participation helps spread the message of donation and could one day directly help save more lives!

On February 25, 2019 Victoria McDonnell suffered a fatal brain aneurysm at the age of 26. She died a hero by an #organdonor. Victoria's last act of kindness was to donate her organs - saving the lives of three people. Please join us at Clove Lakes Park at Stonehenge, Staten Island, NY, on October 2 at 10am for a 5K race in her memory. We hope this run will honor Victoria's life and bring awareness to the need and importance of the gift of life through organ donation and transplantation. All proceeds from "Victoria's Run" will go to the LiveOnNY Foundation to help organ donor and recipient families.

National Multiethnic Donor Awareness Month
April 1, 2023
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
