  • Jersey Day 2016

    Have you got your favourite jersey ready? Jersey Day is an awareness campaign for organ donation in honour of Nathan Gremmo, a former student at AISNSW member school Oakhill College based in Sydney's Castle Hill. Nathan was fatally injured crossing a road yet his gift of organ donation has saved the lives of six people.

    The second Jersey Day will be held Friday 2nd September. Schools and workplaces across Australia are being asked to encourage their students and employees to wear their favourite sports jersey to school or work. The aim of wearing the jersey is to show support for the Donate Life network and to use it to begin the conversation with friends and families about organ donation in a positive way.
