Organ Donor Foundation (ODF) walk

The ODF and in correlation with pharmaceutical company Novartis is hosting a 5km Save Seven Lives walk around the country.

ODF spokesperson and plastic surgeon Dr Gareth Edwards urges people to participate in this worthy cause. He also is testament to how organ donation is able to achieve upon receiving a heart transplant himself.
