If you’ve been to a Columbus Crew game this season, you’ve probably seen the Donate Life booth! We set up shop before every home game with fun activities and giveaways like hero masks and capes.
Because you don’t have to be on the soccer field to be a hero! You can be a hero by saying “yes” to organ and tissue donation. Just one donor has the potential to save eight lives through organ donation and enhance 50 more lives by donating tissue. Transplant recipients everywhere consider their donors to be heroes, giving second chances at life.
Our partnership with the Columbus Crew this season is centered around our “Heroes On and Off the Field” campaign. The campaign features five players, all heroes on and off the field.
Añor is also a tissue recipient and can play the game he loves thanks to his donor!
You can be a hero by registering TODAY as an organ and tissue donor. And tell us how you define “hero” for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Columbus Crew game this Saturday! Comment below to enter.
