Our mission is to raise awareness of the need for organ donors and support the transplant community. As of December 30, 2015, there were a total of 759 New Mexicans on the waiting list for life saving organs. We promote organ donation at various health fairs, conventions and other community events. OTAPNM sponsors the “Transplant Community Support Group” for pre-and post-transplant patients, living donors, care givers, and family members. To raise funds for OTAP and fulfill our mission, we are hosting a 5K walk on April 9, 2017. This year will be our 7th Annual Organ Donation Awareness Walk.
