Right now there are over 118,000 people on the waiting list for an organ transplant—over 98,000 of which are waiting for a new kidney. Every ten minutes another person is added to the transplant waiting list, and 20 people die a day waiting for a new organ.
On Monday, January 20, 2020, join the National Kidney Foundation Serving the National Capital Area (NKF/NCA) for a charity basketball tournament to raise awareness for organ donation at Capital One Arena! Participants will enjoy reserved seating for when the Wizards take on the Detroit Pistons at 2pm following the tournament, and the opportunity to participate in the Wizards fan tunnel and high-five their favorite player.
Prior to the Wizards game, NKF/NCA and our sponsors will take the court for an 8-team, double-elimination tournament. Teams will compete in eight-minute, half-court scrimmages in to advance to the final, but only one will win the championship!
Team sponsorships start at $2,500. Please contact Lucas Crampton at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 244-7900 (ext. 707) to register your team or receive more information about the tournament. Visit us at kidneydunkdc.org.
