Hey Friends. The Lee Johnson Kidney Foundtion has been officially registered as a non-profit and we are working our way towards our first event. The 2nd Annual Organ Open. Also being called the Grip and Rip Classic. Its a long story dont ask. LJKF teamed up with Marriott for this years golf tournament and we are excited about the amount of people that we will have participating. We are looking at filling the whole field of 144 golfers. We will have tons of prizes, good music, and plenty of entertainement.
Our goal when we started the non-profit was to have a family to focus on each year. There are currently over 300 people on Maui alone who are on dialysis. Not one of these people are scheduled to have a transplant in the next 10 months. After doing some research as to why this could possibly be the case I realized that Donor Education is as much an issue as anything. This was not something that I realized because Erica was so pro-active and already quite educated on the medical side of things and knew the pros and cons.
So the LJKF has spread not only into the assistance of tranplant recipients but also into organ donation education. Hey that rhymes.
We are looking for anyone who wants to play, volunteer, or donate to the golf tournament this year. If you are interested in any of the above feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 808-214-3274.
