William H. Connolly & Co., LLC 5k Walk/Run

by | Jun 13, 2014 | Press Release | 0 comments

William H. Connolly & Co., LLC is one of the proud sponsors of the 5K-walk/run. The team name was “Connolly Crusaders” and was 14 strong. The Team raised in excess of $1,000 in support of the Sharing Network.

One of our WHC family has shared the gift of life (living organ donation) with another who was in need. Our dear friend and coworker’s loved one was in need of a kidney transplant and after many agonizing months of trying to locate a suitable donor they reached out to Organ Share and offered to donate a kidney to the program in return allowing her loved one to receive a donation from another matched donor. By divine grace, our coworker’s kidney was matched with someone in need and the process began. The individual who would receive the donation was a match with our coworker’s loved one. Where else do you find the love, caring, and sharing of the gift of life? Here were two couples who never met before giving themselves to another. They are and will be lifelong friends and supporters of the great gifts that were given to them.

We all joined together and we support the organ/tissue donation program and NJ Sharing Network for the work they do. Each year our team shows their support and promises to be better than the prior year. We are getting together to show our strength and support. Organ and tissue donations are the ultimate humanitarian act of charity and generosity. It is our team goal to be 100% strong in supporting the gift of life by walking/running, donating or registering as an organ donor.
