DonorConnect hosts four 5K/2K fun runs each year. These are typically held in various locations throughout our service area in hopes that those interested will be able to attend at least one event. Because of concerns surrounding the coronavirus and large crowds, we have decided to hold one large virtual event on August 8. We can’t wait to connect with everyone at this event. Visit our Dash page for more information.
Celebration of Life Monument
Additionally, we hold a gathering at the end of August for family members and friends to honor the gift of life their loved one provided by adding his or her name on The Celebration of Life Monument. The monument was developed and built by Utah’s Donate Life Coalition (which includes DonorConnect, Utah Lions Eye Bank, and the University of Utah Whole Body Program) as a memorial to organ, eye, tissue, whole-body and living donors and their families, as well as a motivator to others to save and heal lives through donation.
Donation and Transplantation Symposium
On a biennial basis, DonorConnect hosts a Donation and Transplantation Symposium to connect our partners and learn more about how they each impact organ, eye, and tissue donation.
