Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Superior Health Foundation, in cooperation with U.P. Run For Life, has established a “Run For Life Organ Donation Fund” to assist qualifying organ transplant patients and organ donors in the Upper Peninsula with out-of-pocket expenses.
Run For Life organizer Amy Harju and SHP Executive Director Jim LaJoie joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike this week to promote the partnership and encourage interested parties to get involved.
Harju said the Run for Life Organ Donation Fund is set up to assist organ transplant patients with medical costs, prescription and mileage expenses, as well as assist potential organ donors with travel expenses.
All monies will stay in the Upper Peninsula.
