Dear Lance, Intermountain Donor Services gratefully acknowledges your continued support of our Dash for Donation events - specifically the 3rd Annual Dash for Donation held in Pocatello on Saturday, June 24. We appreciated your support by providing newspaper advertising and the use of your facility for packet preparation and pickup. This year, over 200 individuals registered and participated in the Pocatello Dash, which is up from last year's event. We are thrilled that we were able to build upon the previous events and reach more in the community. As you know, donation has a profound impact on saving and enhancing the lives of others through the gift of life. Whether it is the sutuation where an individual received a transplant or was a donor, that person is not the only one affected. Friends, family, co-workers and our community are also deeply affected. The proceeds from the Dash help fund educational awareness programs about organ, eye, and tissue donation. These programs are developed to get famlies talking about organ and tissue donation and encourage individuals to register as donors so those waiting for life-giving transplants may receive the gift of life. Again, thank you for your continued support of the Dash for Donation. We appreciate all that you and your colleagues at Downard Funeral Home do to support our endeavors and ensure our organization's success. Sincerely, Tacy Schmidt Executive Director
