Events and Observances
National Blue & Green Day 2022 is a time to #ShineALight in support of organ, eye and tissue donation! The observance is recognized nationally every year during National Donate Life Month. Community members are asked to wear blue and green to show their support and raise awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation. From dressing up your pup, to decorating your sneakers and wearing your best blue and green outfit, get creative and consider participating in the Donate Life America Blue & Green Day Donate Life America Blue & Green Day Photo Contest.
This year, buildings across our region are lighting up for organ, eye and tissue donation. From the Marion H Rochelle Gateway Center on the University of Wyoming’s campus to the DaVita World Headquarters building, by night the region will be awash with blue and green lights.
