Take the Summer Donor Challenge
Now through Aug. 31, Banner Health is teaming up with Donate Life Arizona to save lives through the first Hospital Donor Registry Challenge.
The goal is to sign up 5,000 organ and tissue donors at hospitals across the state. All of Banner's Arizona facilities are in the midst of a friendly competition to see which facility can register the highest number of donors.
You can sign up online at www.DonateLifeAZ.org, and pick the “register now” tab. Make sure to choose one of Banner's hospitals under the "How'd you hear about us?" drop-down box.
Did you know that if you've registered through the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division, you may have only indicated your "intent" to donate? Please re-register at www.DonateLifeAZ.org if you don't remember whether you've signed up before or if you signed up in another state.
Remember, one organ donor can save up to eight people; an organ, tissue and cornea donor can save and heal the lives of up to 50 people!
