Organ Donors Are Heroes, founded in 2001, is a committed group of volunteers supporting the Gift of Life Donor Program and its charitable supporting organization, Transplant Foundation. Its mission is to raise public awareness about the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor and to dispel the myths surrounding this process. Funds from this event go directly towards attaining our mission.
