2020 Pennsylvania Community Health Center Challenge
Update on 2020 Pennsylvania Community Health Center Challenge:
After careful consideration with respect to the evolving COVID-19 crisis, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Pennsylvania Community Health Center Challenge. We know that you are all on the frontlines and that our communities are facing an extraordinary set of challenges currently that require all of our collective focus and attentions.
More than 8,000 Pennsylvanians await organ transplants, and thousands of others await tissue transplants. Nationally, close to 115,000 men, women and children are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Therefore, we plan to continue this important work next year and thank you for your interest in participating and all you do to raise awareness around the importance of organ and tissue donation.
Questions should be directed to 1-877-DONOR-PA (1-877-366-6772)
