Dealing with a loss of a loved one is a tough situation, but when it gives you the opportunity to help save someone else’s life by donating their organs and tissue, you don’t have to think twice. And with more than 21,000 Californians waiting for an organ transplant, adding your name to the cause will make a difference.
Chivas USA will once again join the non-profit organization Donate Life California in the 10th annual 5k Run/Walk and Family Festival to be held at Cal State Fullerton this Saturday, April 28. The Chivas USA Street team will be present, along with special appearances by the ChivaFighter, members of the ChivaGirls as well as other community personalities.
“Our first year participating with Donate Life went really well, so we didn’t hesitate in partnering up with them again this year,” said Chivas USA Community Relations Senior Manager Nadia Gonzalez. “We have more events planned throughout the season with them so this is the perfect way to kick-off our second year partnership.”
Donate Life aims to increase awareness of the importance or organ and tissue donation. The organization’s partnership with Chivas USA speaks to the team’s commitment to supporting causes that benefit the community. Tissue donation is especially important to athletes who are injured on the field and require reconstructive surgery to replace or strengthen their damaged joints.
