DOVE Sponsor, DLH, took their advocacy to a whole new level by mobilizing their staff to raise awareness about organ donation and DOVE through their DLH Cares Program. During Veterans Week, DLH campuses will be walking as teams for 32 minutes - one minute for each DOVE Veteran recipient! Participating employees were given DOVE t-shirts and information on the mission of DOVE to help promote living kidney donation through nationwide campaigns and outreach events with the aim of creating a living donor registry of prospective donors.
See the DLH team schedule below:
11/7 DLH Charleston & Durham (11:30 am) Will be joined by Donna Haupt Spouse/Advocate for Brian Haupt (waiting Veteran), Melvin Brown (waiting Veteran) & Robert Shelton (waiting Veteran)
11/8 DLH Bethesda (11:30 am) Will be joined by Glenn Padeway (DOVE kidney recipient) & Andre Kirnes (waiting Veteran)
