What a weekend DOVE had! We attended our first in-person EXPO since our program launched in 2020, and we made quite an impact at the Army 10 Miler in Washington DC.
We were able to meet with hundreds of registered runners as well as other military organizations and non-profits.
We are so appreciative that Derrick Ward from the local NBC station took the time to interview our Founder, Executive Director, and Living Kidney Donor - Sharyn Kreitzer as well as Team 18 Veteran Recipient (and 10 Miler Team Captain) - Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) Candice Martin and Team 23 Recipient - USMC Colonel David Jones.
Derrick captured our mission, the energy of the day and we are certain this coverage inspired many to reach out to learn more about kidney donation. See the link below!
We are also grateful to our Sponsor, Transplant Genomics, as well as Georgetown/MedStar and Fleet Feet for providing gift cards for our Raffle prizes!
We can't wait for next year and are looking forward to participating in many more events to raise awareness about kidney donation and support our Military and Veteran community.
Next up: Branson MO and NYC Veterans Parade. Stay tuned and /or reach out if you would like to help! Info@dovetransplant.org
