April is Donate Life Month
Right now there are more than 121,000 patients on the transplant waiting list, including 99,000 waiting for a kidney. April is National Donate Life Month, a time to honor living and deceased donors, and a perfect time for every American to consider organ donation. One day your gift could save seven lives and improve the lives of 50 people! Or you could make a difference today by becoming a living donor. More Information.
Join us on April 12 as we partner with WRTC to celebrate "Donate Life Month" as the Wizards take on the Milwaukee Bucks. The first 25 kids registered are invited to go down on the court at half-time to form the Fan Tunnel! All guests are invited on the court post-game to shoot foul shots!
