Events and Observances
Donate Life Colorado is proud to partner with NASCAR driver, and organ, eye and tissue donation advocate, Joey Gase, to encourage Colorado residents to Show Your Heart for National Donate Life Month this April. Visit the Donate Life Colorado booth at the Denver Auto Show from April 5-9 to Show Your Heart for organ, eye and tissue donation by painting a heart on Joey’s car. Gase himself will be on hand on the evening of Wednesday, April 5th to show his appreciation for registered organ, eye and tissue donors.
Gase was only 18 when his mother, Mary Jo, died of a brain aneurysm in 2011, and he made the decision to donate her organs and tissues. He races in her honor and is now as passionate about promoting organ, eye and tissue donation as he is about racing.
Here in Colorado, there are more than 2,500 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant and thousands more that could benefit from eye and tissue donations. You can Show Your Heart in support of organ, eye and tissue donation during National Donate Life Month. Register to be a donor at the Denver Auto Show or visit DonateLifeColorado.org to sign-up anytime. #ShowYourHeartCO
