Joe Duffy said:

“It is wonderful to be part of this event and meet all these transplant recipients who are embracing their good health and renewed life thanks to organ donation. The Gift of Life Santa Dash on December 13th offers people a fun way to get together and kick start the Christmas festivities while supporting a very worthy cause. It is also very timely at the beginning of the festive season when families come together which is an ideal opportunity to discuss organ donation and let loved ones know your wishes.”
