3RD ANNUAL ORGAN DONATION AWARENESS TOURNAMENT

NATIONAL KIDNEY FOUNDATION


Right now there are over 118,000 people on the waiting list for an organ transplant—over 98,000 of which are waiting for a new kidney. Every ten minutes another person is added to the transplant waiting list, and 22 people die a day waiting for a new organ.

On Sunday, March 5th, 2017, join the National Kidney Foundation Serving the National Capital Area (NKF/NCA) for a charity basketball tournament to raise awareness for organ donation at the Verizon Center! Participants will enjoy reserved seating for when the Wizards take on the Magic at 5pm following the tournament, and the opportunity to participate in the Wizards fan tunnel and high-five their favorite player. NKF/NCA will be on the concourse during the game signing up organ donors in honor of Donate Life Month.
