A San Diego foundation is partnering with athletes to launch a new campaign to create awareness about organ donations.

The foundation will host events, raise money to help transplant recipients and encourage people to sign up to become organ donors.

Diane Brockington, the executive director of the John Brockington Foundation, said she hopes that their partnership with sports figures will help boost the number of organ donors by reaching a new demographic of people.
