Life Savers Rally 2019

Life Savers Rally 2019

Educate. Inspire. Talk About It.

The Life Savers Rally educates and inspires students about organ, eye & tissue donation through presentations of loss, hope and survival. This one of a kind event will change a student’s life as they become aware of the power of donation. We hope students are inspired to offer an awareness platform in their high school.

2019 Life Savers Rally is free of charge and lunch is provided. If necessary, funding is available for bus transportation, as well as substitute teachers.
