Nevada Donor Network & Lights FC Team Up to Raise Awareness of 640 Nevadans Currently Waiting for Second Chance Through Organ Donation — And Need for Increased Organ Donors, Especially Within Local Hispanic Population;
Commemorative Jerseys Featuring “Human Organs Design” to Be Worn By Players During the Month of August.
August 1, 2023 (Las Vegas, NV) — Using its platform as a professional sports team locally to help raise awareness for important causes around the valley, Lights FC & Nevada Donor Network are teaming up this week to raise awareness for the 640 Nevadans currently waiting for a second chance through organ donation.
For the entire month of August, Lights FC players will wear specially designed commemorative jerseys featuring various human organs that may be donated upon a person’s death to provide life to others in need.
The need for local residents to register as organ donors is at critical levels, especially within the local Hispanic community where organ donors often require additional demographic matches to ensure the success of the transplant.
All fans are encouraged to go to NVDonor.org/Lights to register today to become a hero!
Lights FC home matches this month are as follows…:
- Saturday, August 5th vs. Rio Grande Valley FC
- Saturday, August 12th vs. Loudoun United FC
- Saturday, August 26th vs. Phoenix Rising FC
In addition, Lights FC’s home match on Saturday, August 26th will be #DonateLife Night featuring an evening full of activities aimed at raising awareness, including Lights FC hosting the annual “Guns n’ Hoses” soccer match between local Fire & Police employees.
“This is an important cause — and one that we are proud to help raise local awareness,” said Lights FC Owner & C.E.O. Brett Lashbrook. “We sincerely hope that this initiative starts important conversations within families and causes fans to learn more about the 640 fellow Nevadans that are currently waiting for a second chance through organ donation.”
