Aspirus participates in statewide donate life ceremony
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Aspirus Riverview Hospital in Wisconsin Rapids joined more than 80 Donate Life Wisconsin member and partner organizations on April 1 in a simultaneous statewide Donate Life flag-raising ceremony and moment of silence to promote the mission of organ, tissue and eye donation, and to honor donors and their families.
At 10:08 a.m., Aspirus Riverview staff, organ donation recipients, loved ones of organ donors, and community members gathered near the hospital’s main entrance to raise the Donate Life flag and observe a moment of silence.
Donate Life Wisconsin created the Pause to Give Life event in 2018 as a statewide annual observance on the first Monday morning of April, marking the start of National Donate Life Month.
